I'm a tech guy myself, but I'm really stumped on this one.

My display drivers were demanding updates, so I download the newest driver and let it install. It kept stopping/hanging whenever it got to "Currently Installing: microsoft visual c++ 2012 redistributable".
I go to check out if theres anything wrong, and of course, I can't re-install, repair or uninstall the current 2012 on my computer.
I went and got a program to forceably uninstall it, and that worked, but I still can't install a fresh copy of visual c from either the package that came with the drivers, or the install directly from microsoft.

It just sits there, telling me "Hold on, hold on, were getting started, here it comes" and never going anywhere.

A google search for this issue seems to always be solved by just uninstalling and reinstalling, but I'm never so lucky.
