I have Windows 7. I was installing updates like normal but it was taking forever. So I turned of my laptop. When Windows started I chose to start normally over Safe Mode. It started configuring Service Pack. At 30% it restarted on its own and continued with the Service Pack install. When it finished Windows was back to normal. Don't know if this helps anyone but I guess what I learned was that I was good to let Windows run its course. Don't always assume the worst of it could cause further problems.
The only update problem I`ve ever encountered is when the pc is taken more then 15 or 20 minutes to shutdown. I just did a reset and it restarted just fine and configured the update. Hope we don`t see any more service packs for a while.
