Vista Laptop hanging on Windows Update "Configuring Updates"
I have a laptop running Windows Vista sp1; after performing an update and rebooting, it now hangs on 'Configuring updates: Stage 3 of 3 - 0%.' It will then reboot and go thru the same process indefinately. How do I resolve this issue?

When the computer starts you will see your computer's hardware being listed. When you see this information start to gently tap theF8 key repeatedly until you are presented with theWindows Vista Advanced Boot Options.
Select the Safe Mode option using the arrow keys.
Then press the enter key on your keyboard to boot into Vista Safe Mode.
When Windows starts you will be at a typical logon screen. Logon to your computer and Vista will enter Safe mode.
Do whatever tasks you require, and when you are done, reboot to go back into normal mode.
