Windows 7: Stuck during shutdown update

Stuck during shutdown update

Hello guys, I've been rocking the Ultimate RTM for a while now, and this is the first problem I've had so far(hopefully no more). MS just released an update, and it got stuck on update 8 of 15 for 10 hours. Then I restarted and still same thing, gets stuck on 8. Please help, is there anyway to update without shutdown?

I have had a couple of issues with that too. Just keep trying, also it would perhaps help to clean out all the "temp" files. Sometimes that will help kickstart things for you. I use CCleaner, its a free program and is pretty effective.

The shutdown is necessary on some updates so there is really no way around it.

I'll try that thanks. I'll report back tomorrow.

If you are going to clean your system's temp files, you really do not need any third party cleaners. Just go into Explorer.exe (File Manager) then right click on your "C" drive, then just click "Disk Cleanup." From the cleanup window check off the files you want removed; finish by clicking "OK." Good luck either way.
