vista updates and a black screen

  vsmith 13:46 20 Aug 2008

Why does it take so long for Vista updates to install and then configure. Yesterdays updates had me sitting looking at a black screen for 20 minutes the screen then came on showing me it was configuring updates then it shut down and a blank screen for another 30 minutes. It happens with every update. I know when I go to use the computer tonight i will be looking at a black screen with no harddrive activity for anything upto 60 minutes before my pc boots up even though after the update yesterday my computer was fine. Once it has done a black screen on me when log in this evening, it will run fun and boot up everytime until the next round of updates.

I just dont know what is causing it, anyone else have this problem please?
