Re: 6 hours to update Windows 7

My download speed is 100Mb. The drive is new. I updated IE during one of the updates to 11 but who uses that?

I actually like IE 11. I find it very fast. Works great on my Surface Pro.

IE11 is an inept browser. Don't use it. It's like a car that looks nice and just like any other car but your mechanic hates working on it.

I'm your mechanic. I hate working on it. But let's not get off topic.

Check the time stamps in C:\windows\windowsupdate.log it should show which ones took how long.

In reference to my harddrive comment I have seen windows update clobber some harddrives, even a brand new harddrive can be slow and not be able to handle a lot of simultaneous reads and writes.

To be clear I have also seen windows update crawl at a snails pace on a machine with a SSD as well (especially older/low power cpus).
