My updates are taking for ever...Please HELP!!!

In the beginning I had six updates that would take a while to install, then I disabled windows update and deleted some folders to reset the update, now it is doing the same thing only I have to wait for all these updates from the beginning like I have none! Have any ideas what's wrong?

Just let it run in the background.

May not necessary to watch it downloading at all, as it may takes a long time.
Continue to do other things, but try not to surf internet, as it may affect the downloading process.
Go and watch a movie, not streaming, but already downloaded.
Or play games.
Do note that this process is running in the background, do not restart &or shutdown the computer.
