Please help me with this problem. My computer is home made, but this problem only started when I added a 500 GB SSD. The operating system is Windows 7, x64.

 

When I click on the ‘Shut down’ button at the end of a session, I am greeted with the following:

 

‘Please do not power off or unplug your computer

            Installing Updates 1 of 177...’

 

Then when I next start up the computer, I am told:

 

‘Configuring Windows Updates

            0% Complete

Do Not Turn Off Your Computer’

 

The status indicates 0% and remains at this level for some time, followed by the advice that:

 

‘Failure Configuring Windows Updates

            Reverting Changes

Do Not Turn Off Your Computer’

 

This took about twenty minutes, and my CPU is an Intel Core 17-3820 Quad Core, Socket LGA2011, 3.6GHz; no slouch.

 

I have already changed the update instructions to ‘download but do not install’.

 

How do I stop this from happening and will it cause a problem if these, mostly ‘security’ updates are not installed.

 

Regards,

 

john

You can attempt the updates later, and reconfigure it in the Windows Updates menu. This actually happened to me recently to the point that I had to hard-reset. Luckily, Windows was smart enough to revert the unfinished changes made earlier, which allowed me to boot back in successfully and reconfigure it, which then worked out fine.
