If the windows installer is stuck. you may be able to use the msi removal tool to see if you can stop it or remove it. This tool is no longer available from microsoft. You should be able to use a search engine to locate it. Also you can set the msiexec to try to remove it or to use add remove programs. There is a registry key to allow this to work is safe move.

1. Boot into Safe Mode.

2. Create the following registry key (it won't exist by default, :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\msiserver

(If you also want it available in Safe Mode w/ Networking, add the "msiserver" key under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Network\ key found here as well)


3. Edit the "(Default)" value in the new "msiserver" registry key, and enter "Service" in the "Value Data" box. Click OK, and close the registry editor.

4. Reboot back into Safe Mode, and the Windows Installer service should now run and allow you to add or remove programs in Safe Mode.

Thank you louisreevesI. I   have manage to stop automatic windows update from the services in save mode.
But when I start  in normal mode or any other f8 option except directory service restore mode  , OS keep rebooting. Now OS do not try to install or reinstall updates.
