OMG. The big update finally finished. I figured I was home free. Not even close.

First the system had to reboot. OK… I get that.

But that reboot sat there for a very long time with a message about windows updating and be sure not to turn off the computer. OK…

Then we got to the blue screen, where it’s been sitting for a long time now saying “Working on updates 20%. Don’t turn off your PC. This will take a while.” No shit. Really?

Honestly… at this point I would have been better off going out and buying a new computer at Best Buy. It’s OS version would only have been a few weeks out of date, and the update process might only have taken 2 hours or so.
