Windows 7 SP1 Upgrade - Stuck at Windows Desktop Update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok so I have a 4 year old laptop that had Windows 7 Ultimate on it. It is a Intel dual core computer with 4GB of RAM.

    I left it over night to download and install the SP1 patch. I wake up this morning and sign in, it shows a black screen and in the upper left it has "Setting up personalized settings for: Windows Desktop Update"

    I thought that this might take some time so I left for about an hour, now I am back and this screen is still there. I fear that it has broken itself and that it is broken. Is there a way to fix this issue?

  • Can you open Task Manager while in that "Setting up personalized settings" Window appears? (Shortcut for Task Manager: Shift + Ctrl + Esc)

    Then, you can terminate some processes that stuck Windows from continuing its work.

  • During the Black screen, try using Ctrl Alt Delete
    Go to task manager
    check your CPU usage (mine was at zero when i did this)
    Go to processes
    and end both the
    processes that start with Reg (I apologize i cant fully remember the name of it)
    Make sure you do this by right clicking and ending the process tree

    This is how i got past that screen, and my laptop seems to be working fine and its been a few days since

  • Thanks for your help everyone! This worked like a charm. I did not like being extorted by the Mocrosoft Tech when I called. One simple question and it was resolved here for free. Very easy! Peace!
