Windows 7: Why does it take so long to install some updates?

Why does it take so long to install some updates?

Usually even if I have 5+ updates it would update in no time. But It just took like 30 mins for the thing to say percentage.

Picture below, I swear it was like that for 30 mins it's only 2 updates.

Usually it doesn't do this, is this a problem?

Thanks

That is the SP 1 update; it can take a long time -- hour or more. Took me about 40 minutes. Depends on server load.

Hang in there.
