This morning had one critical update, when I allowed this to run going into shutdown it started installing the other updates. When it got to 14 of 27 it has been on this screen now for nearly 5+ hours. The hard drive shows activity as if its loading / installing something. The dots are moving on the update screen . Should I just wait and allow it to keep going see if it continues ? Once again the drive is showing activity as if its installing .
I'm afraid to do a hard reboot in corrupting the drive, if its not installing would it not have already timed out with and error ?

Exchange updates tend to take a long time. Especially if another update touched tangential code (.Net comes to mind.)  I'd strongly recommend letting it run. I know it's painful, but when not done manually, I've seen them take upwards of 8 hours before.  I always do Exchange updates separately and stop all exchange services first. It speeds up patching times *tremendously.*
