Why does Windows 7 take so much time to download updates?
Windows 7 is a complex system that Microsoft updates it incessantly. To keep the system updated to get new features or avoid attacks, it is necessary to run Windows 7 updates now and then, or you can set an automatic updating schedule for it. It is generally reported that Windows 7 takes a lot of time to download updates and this case is seriously discussed and solved by experts.

- Fixing tips
This new Windows operating system is designed to be very light and run quickly without requiring huge amounts of RAM. Most people that have problems are those which are trying to jump from Windows 2000 to Windows 7 all of a sudden. The main issues are the inability to display the folder or the server administrator has limited the number of items that can open simultaneously. The taking up of more time to download is the main problem.
The sluggishness in the downloading operations, interruptions in between the operation are the main symptoms related to the slow updates in Windows. It is an undesirable effect as the world requires faster operations to achieve newer and higher milestones. It is found that the problem was not normally with Windows 7 and may be coming from the recipient system or network.
For starters, cut down on the amount of programs running in the background of the operating system. We can use 'MSconfig' to do this or simply installing software that will identify the faulty programs secretly running in the background and that eat up loads of virtual memory. The second method is the cleaning of Windows registry. This is perhaps the most effective method to speed up Windows 7. There is no internal cleaning tool to clear out errors and corrupt files from the registry and there is an option of installing registry cleaner softwares available in the market.
