entre Posted March 7, 2011 Share Posted March 7, 2011 This is going to be hard to explain. I normally don't allow Windows to Update because it screws up my computer. But today I updated anyway (for a good reason, which I won't take the time to explain). After the update was complete, I uninstalled some software and it prompted me to restart, so I did. But after about 10 minutes it still said "Shutting Down", so I got exasperated and turned it off manually. I waited 15 seconds and turned it back on. Then, for some reason, it started saying "Configuring Updates" again, even though the update was previously completed. Now it seems to be in some kind of endless loop. It configures updates, says it's shutting down, shuts down, restarts, and then configures updates again. It has done this about 7 times, and it appears that it intends to keep going indefinitely. I do not have a good old-fashioned recovery disk, since the computer for some reason lists the D drive as the recovery disk, and I'd have no way of getting to that. Is there anything I can do? My son's astronomy lab is on this computer and he's going to kill me. :cry: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
