Windows 7 Update Installation Stuck
I was using my Dell Inspiron laptop off-line (playing a game). When I powered it down, the "install updates" message appeared saying:
"Please do not power off or unplug your machine. Installing update 1 of 13.."
After hours of waiting, the message has not changed. There seems to be no way out of this. It will not install and I can't find a way to abort or restart the process. The OS is Windows 7 Home Premium. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Re: Windows 7 Update Installation Stuck
It is obvious behavior of the Windows 7 to install the patch for the computer while you are shutting it down. It might be possible that it already downloaded the update and then you turned off the Internet and now it is installing the same. To shut down it without installing update you have to press CTRL+ALT+DEL button and right corner you will find the shut down button. Click on same and select Shut Down. This will shut down your computer without installing update for your system.
