    Hi, I was went onto updates and clicked install to a new java update.
    Then apple update froze with a multi colored circle.

    I use force quit which worked, but some other apps wouldn't open after this and just sat there bouncing on the dock for ages. So next i selected restart from the apple menus and it was going through the shutdown process but didn't complete and just left my desktop sitting there.

    After 10 minutes, i help in the power button to manually shut it down, now it has restarted its all fine.

    What do you think could have happened, i have had it on for the past 3 days only sleeping it.

    thanks

    Sometimes restarting a computer can clear problems you don't even know exist. Try updating it again and it should install fine.
