Windows Update is stuck at 99% downloading. Last successful update was 7/18/10, so it must have been stuck for some time. All high priority updates up to 7/18 have been installed. Reboot does not help. Trying to do the pending updates from the Windows Update control panel does not help. Due to later application software updates, the earliest restore point is after 7/18, so running repair or restore will not help. Resetting update with FixIt 50202 with regular and aggressive modes fails because it cannot shut down the update service. Manually trying to kill the update service also fails.
