    My HP Mini has hung at 9% while configuring updates, for over 72 hours now. In the
    past, I did a hard shut down. Now, I don't know what to do.

    I had to shut down (hard) my XP laptop twice, luckily after the second attempt eveything was installed and running smoothly after booting.
    You might want to install one or two updates at time for this lot of updates. That is what I would have done next.

    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.

    Build your own system; get everything you want and nothing you don't.

    I've had Win 7 update hang on me once on my laptop - I popped out the battery and crossed my fingers as I powered it back on. Fortunately everything worked fine. Who knows what it's problem was.

    Thank you both Clint and Peter. On my latest attempt, a hard shut down finally worked.
    "Who knows what its problem was" is the best diagnostic I've heard. Still,
    on a regular basis, I'm finding that an inordinate amount of time is spent
    on updates -- both at boot and power down.
