I was trying to update the latest update into my vista desktop but I have a problem When I open the computer the green screen comes up with the words configuring updates- 92% complete Stage 3 of 3. There it sticks eventually switches off then comes up again with this message time after time. No keys seem to work and I cannot get onto the computor When I managed once to get into safe mode it switched off. How can I access the computer to correct this problem?

Do you have an original vista disk?
Pop it in the dvd drive reboot and when asked select repair.

Many thanks Used disc but couldn't see any means to repair so I have reinstalled Thankfully I had a backup the day before on a spare hard drive. My problem now is that I seem to have a lot of duplicate files and my hard drive is almost full any programme to get rid of duplicate files programmes etc ?
