Is this is a fresh install or update of windows 7 or is it 'configuring updates'? Both situations sometimes seem to hang at 35%:

If this is a new installation, did you have windows 7 on it before? If not, are you sure it's not a hardware problem? How much ram do you have installed?

This is old windows 7 that originally came together with my computer. But after I posted this, my computer just back to normal again automatically, what a relief! Btw, thank you so much for your advice.

✔ Best Answer
Old computer meaning more that 4-5 years? Has the hard-disk ever been changed?
If not then run a disk check and see no errors pop up.
If you have no backup of your important files, start doing this now!

How to check your disk:

Or download from the disk manufacturer the right disk-check-tools.

Would be wise (echoing the advice from sluc) to copy all your personal "stuff" to external storage now... Typically to DVD but to an external hard drive too is nice(r).

Develop the habit of doing this regularly; updating etc. ,and verifying those copies are accessible on both the system that made them, and (ideally) at least one other...

That way in event of problems of any kind in the future... your "stuff" is safe elsewhere?
