Windows 7: Windows Update stuck at installing SP1

Windows Update stuck at installing SP1

I just reformatted today and are currently trying to install the SP1 and all the other updates for Win 7 and they all went fine but for some reason SP1 seems to be stuck at 75% and hanging. I reformatted once then when it did this previously today I did it again thinking maybe the Windows got corrupt during the install. It's at installing update 1 of 1 on SP1 and has been trying to install since 7:03 and it's now 8:34. Anyone know how I could go about fixing this?
