  • Question

  • Hello,

    Our Windows XP program says that it's installing an update. It's only installing one of them. It has been doing this since this morning and left in the same position all day, for almost more than 8 hours now.  I want to turn of the computer and reboot it.  Should I do this? What would happen if I do this? Do you know what's wrong with the computer? Could it be a memory problem?

  • Although it's not ideal, you have no choice but to force a restart.  Press and hold the power button for about 10 seconds.  That will turn the pc off.  Then turn it on again.
