Windows updating problems

Is anyone else experiencing updating problems on 7? Yesterday I went to update my 7 VM and it took 2 hours to check for updates plus over an hour and a half for installation with most of that time it appeared to be stuck on 0kb downloaded. That makes 2 months in a row of update problems which for me is worse than on Vista. Strangely enough I had no problems checking for or installing updates on 2008 r2; It was all completed in less than 30 minutes however I don't have office installed on that vm.

Hi,
No I finally got all 3 machines picking up updates shortly after start up windows should do automatically
I don't have any vm's though
My policy is to not manually check for updates.
