    Welcome to the forums!

    Yes, two days installing at 2% is a problem. Normally you would not interrupt, but it's safe to insist now is an exception.

    I would try using the front panel reset button on your PC first. If unresponsive, try a hard boot by pressing your front-panel power button for about ten seconds. If neither of those work, shut off the power supply.

    Hopefully it will reboot normally.

    Before running Windows Update again, check for errors by opening an elevated command prompt and running sfc \scannow. If errors are detected, Windows will attempt to correct them. Should it be unable to fix problems, you will need to use DISM to try and fix it.

    If you haven't backed up, now would be a great time to do so! Also, if you're not allowing Windows to manage and update your drivers, you might want to allow it to do so before attempting the update again.

    If the scan returns cleanly, then you can go ahead and try the update again.

    If it hangs again, you might try an in-place installation (reset). First download an iso of the most recent installation file. When performing the reinstall, keep your programs, settings and files. Allow Windows to retrieve updates during the installation process. It should automatically install the latest version 1511 build 10586.29.

    I hope it goes better this time!

    Many thanks for that.
    ....however when trying to run sfc/scannow I get the dreaded..
    ..You must be an administrator running a console session in order to use the sfc utility
    unsure what this means...as I am the sole user and Administator ?

    Right-click the start menu icon, select Command Prompt (Administrator). Then enter the command:

    sfc \scannow

    Even if you're the only account, you still need to make sure you have admin rights for certain actions, thus two options for running Command Prompt.

    Let us know if you need more assistance.

    Great! Happy to learn it worked out well for you!

    As David indicated, you can update specs from your profile. You can also just click on My System Specs in any of your posts and edit from there, too.

    I have to say I have learned a great deal browsing this forum and the members are both friendly and knowledgeable. If you haven't taken the time to browse through the tutorial section, I highly encourage you to do so. There are many useful tidbits throughout.

    Be well!
