Ran into this today; thought I’d document it for others.

Problem:

When installing Windows Updates on Windows 8, it seems to stall while processing the following update:

“Security Update for Microsoft OneNote 2010 (KB2760600) 32-Bit Edition”

Solution

Per this conversion on a Microsoft forum, run task manager and close “spoolsv.exe”.

The update should finish shortly thereafter without issue.
