Yes it hurts Windows feelings if you shut it down in the middle of it updating itself !
One possible solution is to use the Windows restore system to restore it to a point in time before you interrupted these updates. You start this by pressing the F8 button while you see the BIOS screens at switch-on. From the white text on black screen that will appear, choose the repair option and let it run. If this fails to solve your difficulty, it will switch to a screen asking if you wish to restore from a recovery point. These are listed by date. Choose one from before the date of your mishap, let it do its thing and you should be back in business.
This is a problem that has been covered in some depth in the section of the forum on operating systems. If you go to the one on Win 7 and put 'Startup' into the search box you will find the relevant articles.
One final point, if you restore from a recovery point, you will find your computer installing all the updates from that time - don't switch it off until it's finished !
