Windows 7: windows update installing 157 updates 0kb of 0% complete

windows 7 Ultimate Service pack 1 x64
Computer black screen movable mouse after a series of issues

Guys ive started a new thread because the issue got more complicated
Im trying to update my computer with updates but it is refusing to move, i left it alone for an hour and refuses to move, and was stuck on 31 of 34 installed, so i had no choice but to restart

after that it tried to redownload updates again which caused my issue 157 0kb of 0% from the previous thread so ive been looking around on the internet on my laptop i ran a sfc/scannow and it said it found some files but was unable to fix all of them. I also tried using that fix it thing

After i ran a SFC/scannow it didnt fix anything, so i tried a system restore about a week back before i even decided to update, this is where things got disastrous.
For some reason my computer plain refused to boot, i had to keep switching between my windows 7 ultimate disc and my win 7 professional startup repair disc and run startup repair 10 times before i could even get windows to boot up and even then it just gave me a black screen with moveable mouse cursor

Then i tried running system restore from the recovery options to the same spot, for some reason even though the system restore itself failed, it actually got me in back into my computer

What happens now is that my computer is on, but i cannot turn it off or restart my computer because the updates that failed to install but have been downloaded and are ready to install are there and i cant shut them down without the entire problem happening all over again,

Please does anyone have any ideas? id rather not have to reformat my computer, i have backed what i wanted up in case of that eventuality but i don't want to if i can avoid it.

Ok MF if this happens again I woud be very tempted t dump the hard drive or at least get it thoroughly tested and reinstall a new OEM. I personally don't like upgrades mate as I have just been through a lot of rot with my brothers machines when I was in the UK recently and his problems were all upgrade related.
Like I said for the cost of a new hard drive and OEM it really isn't worth it.

another thing you can do is to downlaod the ISO and use the activation code you already have onto a new HDD.
