    I just got my HD reimaged by HP a couple of weeks ago and so vista has been periodically updating by itself. Lately, when I startup I keep going through a cycle of "Configuring updates stage 3 of 3" to "Updates not configured correctly. Reverting changes." As Vista's been updating often without me realizing, I'm not sure which of these updates is causing this problem. I have read this reply: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949358 , and am not sure if this will solve the problem:

    "How to avoid this problem
    To avoid this problem, obtain and install update 937287 from the Microsoft Download Center separately from all other updates on the Windows Update site. Install the update that applies to your version of Windows Vista so that you can successfully install future updates.

    The following files are available for download from the Microsoft Download Center:
    Windows Vista x86-based systems
    Download the Windows6.0-KB937287-x86.msu package now.
    Windows Vista x64-based systems
    Download the Windows6.0-KB937287-x64.msu package now."

    I am hesitant to download this because I JUST got my comp back from HP. I have limited computer knowledge, but am able to check for these:

    OS: Vista Home Premium
    Version: 6.0.6000 Build 6000 (<----- what does this mean? my googling comes up with little in layman's terms)

    and other information from "System Information"

    any suggestions or other info needed to determine what my next step should be? I'm avoiding shutting down/restarting for the time being.
