I’m installing updates for my Windows 7 machine on shutdown. There seem to be two of them, and I get the usual warning:
Please do not power off or unplug your machine.
Installing update 1 of 2.
This has been on my screen for the last 75 minutes now, and I’m getting impatient. Granted, there’s the rotating circle and the moving dots, but nothing seems to happen; Usually an update installs in less than 5 minutes (I’m on a cable connection).
What can happen if I do power it off? Is there a risk that my Windows installation will become corrupted?
