Takes a long time for Windows Update to start-up.

DELL 8250 with 512MB of memory.
Takes a long time for Windows Update to start-up.
I know it has to do with the lack of memory and disk space. I have explained the situation to the client but I don't think it is getting through.
Currently  they have about 14GB free on a 60GB hard drive.
I am ready to take the computer and stuff it with new memory and a larger hard drive.
At this stage of the game I don't know if the client will gain much from the hardware update giving that they computer is so old.
