Windows 7: Windows update froze, go to safe mode and no system restore back up

Windows update froze, go to safe mode and no system restore back up

On this recent windows update, 2/14/13, my computer froze on the "Preparing to configure windows" screen for several hours. I rebooted normally and the screen went to "configuring updates" and stuck at 67% for about an hour. I got frustrated with it and rebooted to safe mode to see if I could do a system restore and when I did it said there was no restore point back up!! What the hell? So I rebooted normally and now it is still just sitting on the "Preparing to Configure Windows" screen with the circle spinning. I am using W7 Ultimate on a Dell Dimension 2400. Can anyone help me with this issue?

Hi davron94,

If there is no 'Restore Point' available, you may try uninstalling the recent 'Windows Updates' in 'Safe Mode' and try booting to 'Normal Mode' again: Windows Update - Uninstall an Update
Note: Please create a new 'Restore Point' before attempting this step: System Restore Point - Create

Hope this helps. Do reply with the findings.
