Windows 7: It's time for Microsoft to fix the Windows 7 update slowdowns

It's in the updates themselves.
There is obviously a random built-in delay loop.

I'm trying to do a clean install of W7.
I started with an image of W7 with SP1 installed (Macrium Reflect is the only program installed).

It took over 12 hours for the Windows6.1-KB3020369-x64 stand alone update to install.

I've never had any issues installing standalone installers on any clean installs. If they do stall, disconnect the Internet connection and stop the Windows update service in services.msc (sometimes you have to reboot after stopping the service) and it should install straight away.

Yep connecting to the internet is the kiss of death until all updates you plan on manually installing are done

It seems to be totally random (hence my "random built-in delay loop" comment).

I used the SP1 Update Pack on one of my VMs and the whole update only took ~15 minutes (including the separate prerequisite update).
