So I did a fresh install of Windows 7 (again), and I shut it down last night and it started installing some updates. 211? I thought it wouldn't take too long. Usually when I have installed all the updates for a fresh install it took no more than 3 hours. But 11??? This is pretty insane. Since I woke up which is about 1 hour ago, it has been stuck on update 177 of 211. I suspect this update has been causing the system to be updating all night because when I last checked before going to sleep last night at 10:30, it was at update 118 or so. My question is why is it taking so long and when will it be finished? Also, is there a way to interrupt this without corrupting the hard drive?
The specs of the machine are as follows:
Intel Core i5-4440 3.1 GHz
8 GB Kingston HyperX Fury RAM (DDR3-1600)
EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti SC
1 TB 7200 RPM Seagate Barracuda
EDIT: I shouldn't say Windows Update, it is supposed to be updating then shutting down.
