New Fresh Install of Win7 Pro 64, but keeps the Shutting down on for a long time!

I wanted to do a computer upgrade, so I bought all new components, motherboard,intel haswell CPU, a Seasonic PSU, 16GB DDR3 Ram, and used my copy of a OEM System build WIN 7 Insrtall onto a new Solid State SSD Samsung EVO 840 (250GB).

I realize that I have to have Windows do their updating process to 'catch up', but a few times when It loades up many update files, lie 138, it states," DO NOT POWER DOWN OR SHUT OFF YOUR COMPUTER". that can take some time, but when it gets to the SHUTTING DOWN mode, last night for instance, after two and a half hours, I had to shut the Tower case power switch OFF. I don't like doing this, but it's the only way to have it boot up again. Then after boot up, it tells me the updates had a failure.

Since this is a, authentic OEM system builder Microsoft Windows 7 PRO 64 Bit INSTALL CD, I know I can not do a SYSTEM RESTORE, and also probably can not do a REPAIR of WINDOWS. I may, but after all the install of software, programs, utilities, et., I did not want to take a chance of screwing what I have already downloaded.

Thank You!

For a start, you are almost certainly outside the licensing rules.
OEM licenses cannot be moved between machines - ever - and can only be moved between motherboards for reason of failure, and only them to a direct equivalent board (as defined by the manufacturer).

As regards your updates - do them in batches of 10 or so, starting from the oldest, and see if that helps.
