Try the install again however this time wipe the HD first with Clean command as shown in this tutorial for Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command accessing DISKPART : At PC Startup.

If this is a Factory Recovery disk, then you may need to order another.

However you'll get a much better install using the Win7 installation DVD following these steps to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 making sure to use the latest official installer with SP1 which is included.

I don't think it's normal to see the "configuring Windows don't turn off your computer" message each time you turn it on or off. Only time I see that message is sometimes after installing Windows Updates.

It's possible that your reinstall of the operating system had a glitch and some of your system files got damaged or corrupt. It's also possible that one or more of your Windows Updates (presumably done after you reinstalled the OS) didn't install correctly. I'm guessing that you probably let Windows 7 install all the updates automatically in one session.

To try to avoid doing another clean install, I'd uninstall all Windows Updates because you would have no way of knowing which update(s), if any, may be causing an issue. Then I'd run a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If any problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If the SFC finds problems but can't fix them, I'd next run a Repair Install. If the computer still shows the "configuring - do not turn off" message, I'd say you have no alternative but to do another clean install.

Repair Install

Once you've eliminated the "configuring - do not turn off" message, it will be time to reinstall Windows Updates. Turn off automatic updates and install them manually, just a few at a time (maybe 5 - 10.) Keep track of the KB numbers. After installing the first group, restart the computer and make sure everything is working properly. If it is, install the next group and reboot. If any problems occur you'll know which group of updates to uninstall (that's why you kept track of the KB numbers.) Install the updates one at a time, rebooting after each one. They'll either all install OK or you'll know which is the problem update. Save it for last and install the next group.

Windows Updates are classified as Critical/Important, Recommended, and Optional. I install in that order. Yes, it's a lot slower to manually install updates, but it's been my experience you get a much better update installation experience.

If the install completed but Updates don't install and keep giving you the error every time you start up, then System Restore to a point before these updates were installed.

You can boot the Win7 installer to do the System Restore by accessing System Recovery Options

When you open Command Prompt, right click it and select run as administrator.
