Hiya,

 

     It seems that every time that I boot up this laptop, it tries to configures updates that Windows Updater has installed. However, they always fail to configure, resulting in a 15-20 minute wait before getting to my login screen. Honestly, it gets annoying. I've tried doing multiple actions to resolve the problem: updating in a clean boot, attempting to delete the pending.xml files (there are about 292 of them!), running SFCHost, and I really do not want to System Restore this laptop. I couldn't even delete the pending.xml files due to administrative rights I could not surpass. I don't know anything else to attempt to fix the problem. If anyone could help, it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance!

See if this command works. Type CMD in the search box. Right click Run as Administator and type

DISM /image:C:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions

I get the following reply:

 

'DISM' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

operable system, or batch file.

Sorry, I thought DISM was available in Vista but it is not.

 

Have you tried doing a System Restore in Safe Mode to a date before the updates installed?
