Yesterday, I was presented with 21 updates. After installing the updates, it gave me the message shown in the subject. Hours later, the message is still there so I went into safe mode and restored to an earlier date but the updates want to install again so I tried again. Same thing. I tried several times last night and again this morning.
Last night I set up update to ask me and this morning Windows scolded me for doing it.
Anyway, I am once again stuck at Preparing to configure Windows, etc.
I have a feeling that if I let it go for a week nothing will happen.
Please, someone, get me out of this mess.
My "low end" Windows 7 computers updated with no problems.
