restoring
Everytime I start up my computer the screen shows a configuring page which
says configuring 3 of 3. It goes from zero to 85% then when it hits 100 my
computer restarts and then repeats this over and over and my computer won't
do anything else. I can leave it for hours even days and this cycle just
keeps repeating itself. Is there a combination of computer keys I can press
so the computer will allow me to restore to the previous time it backed up so
that what ever caused this can be fixed. Thanks

It sounds like you have one of the Vista Updates failed. You should be
able to go to SAFE Mode (hit F8 key usually at start-up). From there
uninstall the last Windows updates or even at Safe Mode use a Restore
Point from before this happened.

Once running make sure you delete the TEMP folder as well.

C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\Temp

There will be a tonne of left over files in there. CTRL-A and select
them all and hit delete. Any in use it will not let you delete, so you
can do no harm
