Hello aacm,

The Windows Updates for 7 have been running slow for many users ever since 10 was released.
I would suggest you install the latest Windows Update Client
This seems to speed things up a little, especially on new installs. But there will still be a wait.

Also try at different times of the day/night. I'm in the UK and tend to get updates quicker in the morning before 12pm than I do at night.

And the most recent update client as stated earlier
