Vista will not start up, stuck on installing updates!!!!!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys,

    My laptop recently automatically downloaded 3 updates and turned off to install the updates, when the computer turned back on the updates says 3 of 3 but the percentage is 0. The computer then shuts itself off and boots back up again and displays the same message. It has been 2 hours and finally i lost patience and just unplugged it. When i turned it back on i pressed F8 and tried to boot in Safe Mode for which it would not, it would load the drivers on screen then go back to the installing the updates 3 of 3 and 0%. I can not by pass this to do a system restore and was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what to do because i don't want to do a reboot and lose everything from my laptop.

    Thank you.
