    Windows seven 64 crashed during updates

    Windows set off to do updates last night.....14 hrs ago.....it had 13 updates to do...usual message Do not power off until updates are complete.
    Stuck on 8th update and nothing more just sitting there.
    Any ideas?

    Mine has just done them too, I think you'll have to power off anyway even if you just pull the plug.
    Most likely it will just not apply the update - might even pop up a message saying so and should it try again..
    If things seem wonky do a restore to before the incident.

    Minimise the screens to see if there is a UAC pop up requesting permission to install one of the updates, had that before- it was hidden behind multiple screens and just needed allowing.

    Well sometimes life turns out well......Left it churning along all morning 17 hrs in total.
    Had a quick look at lunchtime, it had switched off as per normal, started it up it rumbled away for a few minutes flashed various screens up including one that mentioned the place you should never ever ever go😱😱😱THE REGISTRY😱😱😱!
    It then concluded that all was OK and announced that it had configured the updates and lo and behold Windows leapt into action, well crept into action, much as per normal.
    Mightily relieved
    Gee
    Thnx for for suggestions!

    I thought they were supposed to be done doing updates for Windows 7 in January for non-enterprise installations?

    Do you have CCleaner?
    Every home should have one!

    XP Support completely finished April 2014

    Windows 7 primary support ended January 2015 it is now on extended support so only critical bugs will be fixed, applies to both consumer and enterprise users.
