Windows 7: Windows freezing/operating slowly while updating

Windows freezing/operating slowly while updating

I returned to my computer after turning it off last night and it was still downloading a windows update after 10 hours. The computer screen reads:

Please do not power off or unplug your machine.
Installing update 3/7 ..

I am not sure whether I should continue downloading or unplug the computer. If I should continue, how long do you think the update will take? My computer is pretty new. If I should unplug, what can I expect to happen to my computer and what should I do then?
