    Just wait...if it's that security update from last week, it took a little while to do it's thing (like more than 60 little spins of the black wheel on my machine).

    Hmm. I've had the same problem once or twice and rebooted and nothing bad seemed to happen. Certainly nothing permanent. If strange problems persist you might do an Archive & Install, or download a Combo updater from Apple's site and try that. But it'll probably be fine.
