Windows 7 pro 64 bit
Repair install stuck: Copying windows files (0%)

I had this problem doing a Win7 repair install (SP1). The system was stuck at
Copying windows files (0%) for two hours.

With ctrl+alt+delete I could start the Task manager, then search under C:/Windows/SysWOW64/cmd.exe

Then I typed the commands to stop Windows Update from running:

net stop bits
net stop wuauserv

The system responded immediately and the install went smoothly thereafter.
