I do appreciate everyone's help.  Thank you!

Now I'm waiting for the .Net Framework update to install.  There's drive activity but the update has been going for at least 10 minutes now!

107 updates and most of them didn't install.    :smash:

You would be better off doing just a few updates at a time, restarting and then continuing. 

In the event you continue to have problems with the updates, check to see if the System Update Readiness Tool is offered.  See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821

The amount of time I've put into this thing is staggering.  What the heck does a non-technical person do?

What would my MIL do if I wasn't around?  Take somewhere?  Would normal service include reinstalling everything?

You're right, Adam444.  That is precisely what people do -- take their computer to a shop, pay the service fee just for "walking in the door" and then the tech would recover the data and reinstall the OS.
