Disconnect from the internet, do the repair.
Whilst you are investigating the cause of the problem - re-configure auto updates not to
auto download etc

| Basically I had to re-format my laptop back to factory default settings, and
| when I loaded VISTA it told me it needed to download windows updates so I let
| it do that and then it said "you must now restart your computer for the
| changes to take effect" so I let it do that and before it even loads the page
| where i can log onto my computer account a blue screen appears and then it
| restarts the computer again and it tells me
| Windows failed to load please instert the windows vista disk to repair windows
| so i put in the windows vista cd and pressed f12 and then selected "repair"
| and then it says "system restore" and then it backdates the computer and then
