Ok now I have never tried playing with updates in this ditty of mine but maybe it is worth a go - at very least you can retrieve data if you need to go a for a reinstall.
BOOTABLE UBUNTU
Make a bootable Ubuntu disk http://www.ubuntu.com/download
Set the BIOS to boot from the optical when the machine boots it will show you a screen with TRY or INSTALL > select TRY not INSTALL
When it is finished - it takes very little time you will get a screen like in the pic .
Open the drive you want > User and dig down until you get to the data / settings you may be able to copy / paste the material you want to an external source or other installed drive doing this.
I am not sure if it will but I have recovered tons of data etc using this method both on "dead" or just plain drives that you cannot get data from using Windows.

There is a Linux Mint option but I find this quick and does what I want.

Windows Update trouble.
When I click check for updates it goes on and on. It never takes this long so I restart. Restarting, etc. will not resolve this problem, it remains constant. I think a recent update has led to this although when visiting installed updates... nothings there.
