come across this a number of times, most of them are because of windows update, best to cancel then update 7 fully and try again
#2
Also setting automatic updates to never check for updates helps with this issue. You'll need reboot pc after making the change.

If i exit it will it pick up where it left off?

Not quite, you will simply just go through the download/update process again. We're both assuming your stuck at 99% and still in Windows 7 though.

I bought it prebuilt (dirt cheap, much cheaper than building) and it has always said never update

okay, checking for updates....

You could be while bringing Windows 7 uptodate if you've never been applying updates.

That happened to me trying to update win7 (stuck on 99% left over night and still no joy).I done a fresh install of win7 and then upgraded it to win10 no problem.
