Windows 7: Configuring Updates but it does not

Configuring Updates but it does not

From around about three days back I when turning my PC on I get the message configuring update do not switch off your computer 0 % done. Now normally it will go through the process of configuring the updates downloaded however this time it just sits at 0% until it seems to time out and then it boots normally. The next time I turn on the same thing. I am not sure as I have really not taken note but I think I get a similar thing on shutdown

Any ideas on this would be appreciated

Same thing here, and it is going to start me p*** off a bit. Every morning to wait 5 minutes when it configures the update and then takes it back and starts windows normally.

Yes I think this comes from the last update that was downloaded a few days back

Ok, I thing i just got mine fixed. I went to the update window and installed these updates manually (not from the "Shut down button") and then rebooted the system.
