I had a notification for a necessary Win7 update - so I said OK, download & install. Update was indicated as downloaded OK etc but then indicated a restart was needed.

I responded with OK - and went for my dinner. An hour later the screen indicated

Configuring Service Pack
30% completed
Do not turn off your computer

Another hour later it STILL SAYS THE SAME

Humm - summat is "stuck" I think
The circulating / rotating widget or whatever is still moving but WHAT DO I DO NEXT????

Just sit & wait?
Pull the plug?
What could be the consequences of pulling the plug?

(. . . and yes, I'm using a different machine now)

Try ctrl-tab in case a pop-up has disappeared behind.

And after that try minimising for the same reason.

I've come across allusive pop-ups recently, only waiting for an "ok" to be hit.

Ctrl-Tab did nothing

How can I minimise when all I have is the blue background screen with-

Configuring Service pack

Do not turn off your computer

and then Windows 7 Home Premium at the bottom

Been like that 4 hours now

The question is - what to do if it just continues like that???

If I just pull the plug will it all start up again so that I can roll back to the last Save Point (which it made before it started this ******** procedure ??

Dude the thing has crashed, just pull the plug and it'll attempt to reinstall once you hit the desktop and reboot.

Personally I wouldn't bother with the update.

ex0 - I am sure you are correct about the crash

I will pull the plug soon and see what happens

I will also NOT try to get the SP1 for a while.

OK, pulled the plug then restarted

On restart it went directly to the message

Do not turn off your computer

BUT THEN carried on configuring the Service pack
and finally gave my usual screen + a message SP1 is now installed

******** Microsoft
