Windows 7: Anybody else have "REALLY SLOW" Windows Updates for .net Framework 4

Anybody else have "REALLY SLOW" Windows Updates for .net Framework 4

Was wondering if anybody else has recently gone through some Windows updates that just seem to take absolutely forever to install? I thought that my new box had a hardware issue last night because it was installing about 6 updates and it seems liked it was sitting there for like 30 minutes.

Today at work, I'm updating a Windows 7 64bit Enteprise machine and it's been cranking for quite some time on 10 updates. KB2604121, KB25656351, KB2532531, KB982670 are a few of the KB numbers. These names seem very similar to what I saw from home last night on my new box.

All .NET Framework updates are slow, but you might want to run the Windows Updates troubleshooter.

Open the Windows Update troubleshooter

You could also disable your anti-virus program while downloading and installing these updates.
