Windows 7: New W7 installation; everything worked fine, until the update

New W7 installation; everything worked fine, until the update

I installed Windows7 from a USB stick that I got from Microsofts online service (not sure whether it had the Service pack or not) onto a new Asrock motherboard, and an AMD APU. Got it working. Installed the drivers from the CD that came with the motherboard, did back up to a DVD, and then connected to the web, and the first thing that happens is an update from Windows.

Normally this would result in some type of warning "installing update 1... n, do not shut down your PC." Now it's just saying "shutting down" and it's been like this for approx 30-45 minutes. I tried ctrl+alt+del and ctr+shift+esc, but they resulted in nothing. How long should I wait?

Never mind. I forced a shutdown. Seems to have gone well.
