Windows 7: Win7 PC stuck on update 6 of 23

Win7 PC stuck on update 6 of 23

CPU started auto update on shut down and has been stuck on update # 6 of 23 for 2 hours. Is delay legit or am I headed down a "rabbit hole"? If the rabbit hole is my destination can anyone provide the correct steps to stop the current attempt at updating without having to do a system restore?
