I trust you didn't turn it off while this was happening correct? If you have already tried a system restore point then I'd suggest trying to use the windows repair tool. If that fails, just reformat.

I'd spam F8 on boot, then select Repair your computer. Select your installation from the box on the pre-environment screen and let it do it's magic. You can always try 'Last Known Good Configuration' This selects the last successful login stored in the registry. I've had good success with that option in the past on domain PC's when users get sick of waiting and power cycle a PC.

I had to test my theory above to get it working purely because I've switched to Linux now, but yes I concur with your point.

Configure your windows updates such that it's not automatic, the setting is something like "ask me when to download and install updates".. then there is a method i can't recall exactly but it's searchable on MSDN to clear your update cache (potentially just deleting windows temp but I think there is a more preferred method). Once you've gotten that all taken care of you can open win update and do manual installation and pick through updates 1 at a time to get up to date. Likely the cause of the problem is you may just be running out of space or the amount of updates to download and install are just timing out on you.. likely culprit might be .NET or all the shit they are trying jam down win7 users for win10 - in fact it might be the win10 installation stuff itself. Search on how to opt-out of win10 updates on win7 to avoid that mess.
