My laptop has Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit installed on it.. Its set to do updates at 3am, which it does normally most of the time.
But when I got up this morning around 7am the update screen was showing

"Please do not power off or unplug your machine. Installing update 3 of 11 "
Well that was at 7am and it is still on 3 of 11.

What to do ? :(

Ok restarted and all the updates have installed no problem. Thanks Mucks and V_R. Sometimes the simplest answer is staring us right in the face

It sometimes happen, don't shut down your machine else your windows might get corrupt. As the same things happened with one of colleague and he turned off his machine and his windows got corrupted. The same thing happened with me one day and i let the installing complete and then nothing happened to my machine.
