On one machine but on reboot it sat there "installing update 3 of x" for 2 hours. Finally rebooted without any ill results and installed it as a standalone and it worked.

I sure hate to reboot when that "do no power off your computer" screen is up.

I'm installing the rest one by one, have 3 to go, I _hope_ that was the hanger.

Sorry, I should say on power down it gave me the installing update message for 3 hours.

The remaining updates installed just fine.

Whew.

Ouch!  It's amazing what people will do when they just don't know much about computers.

The last update took quite a while. Tuesday night or Wed morning. Of course it always seems to happen when either I'm ready for bed or getting ready to leave the house.

I let it run over night and finished it this morning.  That was a bit unusual to me having updates finish installing when trying to shut down, then next on boot having some message about things being set up and then shutting down again, then having updates install on boot again before going to the desktop.
