Windows automatic update stuck at various %'s on Vista

Specs: Windows Vista
When you start it up, it says "updating 1 of 3 0%", never shows progress just suddenly goes to login page. The Windows automatic update gets stuck at various %'s on Vista Home Edition. When trying to restart/shut down it says "Updating configurations Do not shut down your computer".
Well if I don't, it will sit forever without shutting down, so I have to manually power it off. It's all an endless cycle. I can't even uninstall programs, but I was able to download some??

Might try a restore point to a few weeks ago. Might end up having to reload the OS. I'd at least try to see if some malware is causing it. Try some antimalware program maybe.

Katy Perry, I'd never treat you badly.

I don't have a restore point at this time as the OS was restored (the register had a lot of errors). I had a few restore points before the reload, but none of them worked. I was suddenly not able to get internet connection unless I was in Safe Mode with Networking. The automatic updates still don't work, or tif I try to download them myself. I can't delete programs. There seem to be a problem still with Windows Explorer and Task Manager???? I have internet connection though, but it seems like th CPU runs excessively high even without anything "active" (don't really know what's going on in the background).
