windows update taking too long to install

Specs: Windows 7

I am trying to update my Windows 7 on my lap top but it continues to say (0 KB, 0% complete). There hasn't been any progress and I have over 70 updates for this computer. Why is it taking so long? Why hasn't any updates been installed? Its just taking forever!

Some of the updates can take a very long time to install. With 70 updates you could be looking at an hour or more. You'll see the progress bar move as they initialize.

How much time does you wait for installing

If you have a hard wired network available and your laptop has a RJ45 network port, try connecting it that way. If your updates are not fully downloaded yet, this will be a faster way, especially if you are downloading SP1 which is a rather large file if you are behind on your updates. As an alternative you can cancel and do a manual Windows update and select some of the updates to do at a single time, and repeat this as time allows. This also has the benefit of pinpointing any single update that is hanging.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
