Windows 7: Configuring Windows after Updates does not work

Configuring Windows after Updates does not work

I had a problem with the September updates and with the July updates. All updates seem to be installed and then the computer has to be restarted. The "Windows Updates being Configured" is OK and then reboot and "Windows Starting". But then the display becomes black and nothing more seems to happen. After about half an hour there seems to be no more disk activity. Then I wait for another hour and still nothing more happens. Then I have to turn off the computer and let it reboot. Then it seems to be a normal Windows startup.

1. What can I do to avoid this problem at the next patch tuesday?
2. There was no "Configuring Windows" after this reboot. Does it matter?

Hi Sven,
If the updates are installing doesn't sound like to big a problem.
Suggest you
change your settings, then reverse them back, (to your preffered)
then run the WindowsUpdate troubleshooter, report if any errors.

Many thanks, Roy!
The WindowsUpdate troubleshooter did not find any problems.
So I have to wait and see what happens next patch tuesday.

Today I decided to update and once I reset they began installing until 30%, where the message changed to shutting down without actually crashing until 30 minutes later. After I turned my PC on again it just continued from the 30% and completed without any more problems.
