click here you need to install this. Have a look to see what updates are not installing or have tried to install and uninstall them from Windows clean up utility. Then try installing them again,if possible a few at a time.

Can you press Ctrl Alt and delete at the same time and maybe shut down from TaskMaster.If you can go to shut down at the top and press Turn off.
