If you look through different threads in this forum you will find a truck load of members going through the same head ache with Windows 7 Updates.
It can take form 6 to 8 hours all the way up to 48 hours.
I think it's Microsoft little way of spanking us for not going to W-10.

Windows 8.1 Pro x64

I installed win 7 x86 ultimate at an old laptop with Pentium M 2.00Ghz. Windows update uses all the cpu and makes it unusuable. Newer computer took about 10hours to show them.
Now I am trying to install updates via WSUSOffline. It didnt take much time to download the updates though so I wonder why windows 7 sp1 is too slow.I guess we should capture a generized image with the updates to avoid this pain.
