Which Update is it stuck on? Is the HDD LED flashing? (Some updates seem to stick but are still loading)

is there another windows underneath the main window your looking at and its waiting for you to prompt and accept a licence agreement or something.

if it is stuff then I would hold the Laptop power button for 4 - 5 seconds hold it down and it will power off then wait a few mins and restart, then go back to your updates and try again.

Also which windows are you using.
