My laptop died and I purchased a new one, with such bad luck that I had to return it two times for being deffective. So this is the 3rd one in a row in which I am suffering the same "torture".
After three days or so, when starting Windows (after shut down, not suspend), it will take hours with "configurating windows updates". It usually stays stuck forever in 15% done, then it goes to 16% after half an hour, then to 17% after whatever time and then one day it just reboots and when you think it's over, it starts again with more configurating. A real nightmare.
I noticed in the Microsoft forums that this is happening to everyone, specially after a few days of use of the new laptop.
It is annoying and actually it can even be a serious problem for people who are in a professional or personal hurry or emergency to use their computers. Microsoft should warn about this, let people decide if they accept having their systems blocked for unknown time for unknown reasons.
What do you think the reason can be? It takes so long that looks like a whole Windows reinstall. Actually, it takes far much longer than installing Windows 8.
I think that Microsoft should apologize and give explanations.
