Windows 7: Stuck at preparing to configure Windows Do not turn off your computer

Hi Susan, welcome to 7F! :)

On 7F the usual procedure is to attach uploaded files that need checked, into the original poster's (OP's) next reply, it may seem a little standoffish to have members email them directly to you, although this may be easier for you it goes against the grain of 7F. It is a matter of semantics with what you are used to over a Microsoft Answers, and what is allowed here.

I haven't had problems with KB2862330 simply because I didn't install it although I do have concerns with the security of my USB ports.

It wasn't checked when I went to install the latest patch Tuesday and when I checked up on it with an online search I found a lot of users with problems, maybe because of the requirement of having to do a double re-boot that a lot of users machines couldn't handle.

I also did not have problems with kb 2859537 | SevenForums Thread it was installed along with the other patch tuesday updates in august.

If you need any assistance please respond here or on my profile page, if it helps, my system specs are filled out in case you need to know what type of machine I work with. (click on "my system specs" in the lower left corner of my post)
