Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
Have an acer 5630 wit windows vista.
Today it shut off on it's own, and then restarted.
But when it came on it said,"configuring updates:stage 3 of 3 0% complete, do not turn off computer"
Then it will shut it self down and restart right back at the same spot , and do this ove and over until I shut it off.
When I restart it happens again. It seems to be
stuck in this configuation.
Any thoughts on what is causing this, and how do I get around this?

Use F8 during boot (right after POST, so just keep tapping it) to bring up the menu that offers you to boot in safe mode; IF you can boot 'safe with network' you can become a member at http://www.techsupportforum.com where you get comprehensive handholding to remove any type of malware that may be causing this. If you can only boot safe, you need to run mmc.exe and open the services console. Disable any service lacking a description (possible malware or else they would provide a service description) by double clicking its name and selecting type = dasabled, 'apply', 'ok'; then try to reboot normally; use the web to find out what those newly disabled services are for and decide whether to turn any of them back on. If this fails to solve the problem, repost (or if this forum supports extended threads, reply to this) and we will consider changes in symptoms (if any) etc.
