Windows 7: Configure Windows Updates 3673% complete. Yes that is a correct %

Configure Windows Updates 3673% complete. Yes that is a correct %

I left my computer logged on to the admin account yesterday. It does not sleep so when I woke up the monitors this morning I found the screen (attached) still counting up. My second monitor showed my normal background which I thought was odd if it was truly running updates. I right clicked on it and my task bar appeared on the main screen. I didn't do any more troubleshooting I just restarted. Everything seems to be running normally but I decided to check the Windows Update page and the last updates were installed on 7/11/2014 (screenshot attached). I stopped there and started looking for answers.

If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be great.

Also could this be a prank or a hack?

um....yea....something is definitely wrong there only I cant put my finger on this one. This seems like some sorta practical joke. But there obviously has to be a glitch in windows causing this. I would just let it continue until it finishes. Ive never seen this one before so ya got me as to answers.
