    Updates are downloaded but are not being installed. Installation Status
    showes "initializing installation..." while nothing occurs in the status bar.
    I have left the computer up and running overnight without any progress. No
    error messages received.

    I had the same problem. I also couldnt get my folder properties to show. I
    found a temporary fix.

    Press control + alt + delete, click on the processes tab at the top, find
    inetinfo.exe, select it, and at the bottom left click end process.

    I don't know why, all I know is that it works.
