> I have Windows Vista, and when I boot up my computer, instead of getting
> login screen, I get a message that tells me it is configuring updates and
> not shut down. My computer proceeds to then shut itself down after about
> seconds, re-boot itself, and then the same message comes up again instead
> my login screen. This process repeats itself until I manually shut down
> computer or pull the plug out of the wall. How can I bypass this
> configuration so I can access my login screen? My computer is inaccessible
> at this point since this message is reoccurring and will not allow me to
> anything besides sit there and read this recurring message.
> Any help is appreciated!
