Hi everyone, The other day my windows 7 desktop began automatically updating without warning. It reached 35% completion and stayed there for several hours. Upon restarting my computer it did the same thing, until finally after one of the restarts it gave me the 'failed to configure updates' message. The problem is that even if I leave it for many hours the computer only gets to the shutting down step and will then remain there indefinitely without actually shutting down. I can access my computer with safe mode and have attempted a system restore, but the same thing essentially happens where it says it is restoring but I have left it for an hour + and nothing seems to be happening. If anone could shed some light on this issue it would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
