    My dads vista laptop is stuck on configuring updates 3 of 3 0% complete. On start up it sticks on this screen then automatically restarts but keeps looping back to this update message. As I cannot get into the computer at all I tried starting in safe mode which brought me back to the same screen. I was able to press f8 on start up to access system recovery from a previous point but this only gives me one previous point to restore from which says windows updater. I have restored from this point anyway but am getting the same problem. I have tried repair but it doesnt find anything wrong. I am loathe to do a complete reset as I do not want to lose all the photos. Please can someone offer any advice on this issue and it is driving me insane. The laptop is 18 months old.:(
    I have looked up other threads on this problem but system restore from a previous point always seems to work for other users but not for my problem.
