Computer won't properly install the 10 Jan 2008 updates.
I was shutting my PC down last Thursday and saw that there were updates to
install for Vista Home Premium, 32 Bit edition. So I opted to have it install
and shutdown when finished and I went to bed. When I got up on Friday it was
still on the "Shutting Down" screen. Gave the computer another 2 hours to
process, still nothing. So I manually shut it down with the power button.
Tried to reboot it and it hung up on the "Configuring Updates" screen and
stayed there for hours. Again I shut it down and powered it back up. This
time I had it boot up in safe mode and again it hung up on the "Configuring
Updates" screen, Rebooted it and this time it had to option to do a system
restore to the day before the updates. I tried this and got the computer boot
up almost normally.

This time it showed that there was another update, this one installed, but
it took hours. Now the computer boots up, but it skips every second and a
half or so. If I move my mouse it'll track fine, then it'll skip halfway
across the screen and my keyboard will miss keystrokes in the same manner.

I've tried to do a system restore and update my drivers for my vid card,
processors, mother board, you name it. The updates say that there was a
problem and that the operation timed out. The system restore also fails and
says that the creation of the shadow copy timed out and gives the code
(0x81000101).

I'm out of ideas at this point. I'm ready to just wipe the bloody thing and
be done with it, but that's a hassle at best. If anyone has any ideas, please
let me know before I take the black disc to it thanks>

Comp Specs:

Vista Home Premium, 32 Bit
Intel Core 2 6600 @ 2.40 GHz
Dual 1023 RAM sticks
nVidia 8800 GTS 640 Mb video card
ASUS P5N-E SLI Motherboard

Re: Computer won't properly install the 10 Jan 2008 updates.
Since we have no idea what you updated....what you have your Updater set
for...
Wipe the bloody thing and be done with it........then reinstall from your
backups.
Suggest you turn off Automatic Updates this time and just set it to NOTIFY
you....then use IE to go to the update site and scan your system and only
download the high priority ones.Harware updates should be done from the
manufacturers website.

Try googling ASUS P5N-E and "configuring updates"

You'll see a lot of users are hitting the same issue with the January 10th updates. It looks like something's clashing with the specific motherboard.

As mine's still well within the first 30 days, I'm debating taking mine back and changing it out for a motherboard that actually works under <em>all</em> vista updates.
