windows7 update will not finish

Hi everyone,

I have a vmware funsion with windows7 installed. Windows7 have started updating but won't finish (it have been for 2 days saying "14 of 55 updates") and it doesn't allow me to shut down windows, vmware or anything.

What can I do? Does someone have a suggestion? I really need to access a program that I don't have on mac.

Thank you Smiley Happy

You can force-reboot the virtual machine by holding down the opt key, then click virtual machine-shut down.

That may corrupt things, so it's a last resort.

I was able to turn off vmware, but everytime I reboot it, windows starts with the same update and don't work. Any suggestion?

Did you shut down the guest OS, or just suspend it?
