I installed samsungs magician ssd software for my 120gb 840 series ssd in my newly built pc. It told me to restart to put some changes in effect. Upon restarting, the machine is stuck on updating windows updates 12 of 12. I left the pc for a few minutes after i restarted, so im not sure what happened to the first 11 updates. Update 12 has been showing the moving dots for the last half an hour. I tried turning off my pc and turning it back on, but it just loaded to the same screen (it didnt even show the bios option). I will turn off automatic updates as soon as i get the chance, but how do i enter windows? Im thinking of letting this run overnight to see if it ends itself.

Unplug the computer from the wall. Then when you go to boot into windows it should ask to boot into safety mode. Boot into safety mode and then system restore back to before the update.

I turned the computer off, unplugged it, and plugged it back in and turned it on. It went to some other windows update that instAlled within a few minutes and took me straight into windows 8. It didnt ask me anything about safe mode, but afaik my computers running fine. And by the way did I corrupt anything by unplugging my pc?

that only happens on rare occasions, so probably not.
