    windows update never finished

    last night when i shut my pc down there appeared the common message "windows installing update 1 of 1. do not power down" this morning it was still in that mode. I powered down and started my pc. it booted up but had a few oddities on the desktop.
    i tried to do a system restore and ended up with the message "system restore did not complete successfully. details: an unspecified error occurred during system restore. (0xc0000022)
    i attempted to do a restore to an earlier restore point but was asked if i wanted to undo the recent restore. i'm not sure what to do next. i'm afraid if i try to undo a restore that i was told did not complete it will get messed up. any suggestions please?
