    Weather was bad this morning. Selected shut down on my VistaHP system before I left for the office. Got home tongint. and the pc has been stuck in "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% complete Do not Restart your computer" An hour later, I got fed up and have been trying various methods to get into Safe mode to use ERUNT but without luck. Even have my OEM VIsta disk on hand and its options get me back to the same spot. Suggestions? I have Acronis but can't seem to get at it. Thanks.

    One of the methods at http://www.tipandtrick.net/2008/endless-re...1-installation/ might work for you.

    Have you tried for Acronis in Safe Mode?
    Did you make an Acronis boot disk?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Bob's probably right. If you can't access the system any other way, you will probably have to boot to a CD or DVD to gain any access or control. Either an Acronis Recovery Disk (if you created one) or a Windows installation CD to try a repair install of the OS.
