I've brushed it off for some time now, thinking it would fix itself but it obviously haven't.

My specs are here:

Hopefully that's enough to help fix the problem. Thanks!

How long do you leave it running before declaring that it's not working ?

It just loops at that screen forever so I just assume that it's stuck. I left it on for about 2 hours and still that screen

Did you try Microsoft's official fix (resetting the Windows Updates components) ?

I suggest you to try the FixIt first and if it doesn't work, follow the manual procedure.
