Windows Vista never finishes updates
Whenever I shut down my computer the screen reads "Installing updates x of x,
do not turn off computer." Or something like that. The problem is, it never
finishes installing the updates. It always locks up. I've left it alone for
days (foolish, I know) to finish, but it never does. Can anyone explain to me
why? Thank you in advance!

Re: Windows Vista never finishes updates
Are you currently running Vista or Vista SP1? <=just a question, not a
recommendation

Re: Windows Vista never finishes updates
Is this a sudden, new problem or an ongoing one? In any event...

Start a free Windows Update support incident request:
https://support.microsoft.com/oas/de...spx?gprid=6527

Support for Windows Update:
http://support.microsoft.com/gp/wusupport

For home users, no-charge support is available by calling 1-866-PCSAFETY in
the United States and in Canada or by contacting your local Microsoft
subsidiary. There is no-charge for support calls that are associated with
security updates. When you call, clearly state that your problem is related
to a Security Update and cite the KB number(s) (e.g., KB123456) for the
update(s) failing to install, if possible.

For more information about how to contact your local Microsoft subsidiary
for security update support issues, visit the International Support Web
site: http://support.microsoft.com/common/international.aspx

For enterprise customers, support for security updates is available through
your usual support contacts.
