Go to Windows Updates, set to Never Update, shut down, start up, go back to Updates and set to automatic. Updates will start running. Let run overnight and the chances are 95% they will be done in the morning.

Microsoft is mucking about with updates and if you machine was running fine, don't try to fix much as it likely is not your problem.

Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete... a lot of times it just hangs up.  I bet it returns to the login screen.

Should I go through SOlution 4 to fix the Window Update ? It has run with over 4 hrs already. The problem right now is that CPU is staying high at around 30%...

Up to you. I would try what I suggested tonight and then do more troubleshooting tomorrow if warranted.

A month ago my Windows 7 virtual machine to some hours to update (but finally did). I turned it off for a month and then last Patch Tuesday it updated in 30 minutes. Nothing I did caused this.

Just install the Convenience rollup update for Windows 7 SP1. No need to wait so long :-)

is this on a fresh install?

then install these 2 updates first:
First always make sure you have at SP1 installed. That is required
Install the following patch: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3102810
 And then install the newer version of the Windows Update Agent:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/949104

 your updates should be a lot faster now

Do as nobus suggested, but the other way round. First install the new Agent, and after that the KB. If you install the KB before the agent, installing the KB takes a long time (can take more than an hour). If you do it the other way round, it only takes a couple of minutes. Then reboot.

Just last week I installed Windows 7 to a PC, then used my method, and the check for updates then only took 15 minutes until I was shown which updates were available for my system. The download and installation took another 2 hours, and I had an up-to-date system. This was on a core2duo PC (2.66GHz, 3GB RAM).

The convenience rollup also mentioned earlier on, I have tried several times. Most of the time, although the installation was fast enough, after the reboot I got a message that it had failed and would roll back. At other times when it didn't fail, and I wanted to get the rest of the updates, it would still take days before finishing. Actually I only was lucky once when it worked properly, so I would not recommend it at all....

Install the Patch https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3102810 which is already suggest here by Nobus.

This one should fix your issue.

Also make sure you got enough free space on drive C, as it will download the updates and install it in same location. As you saying you installing patches after long time it would be worth to have some good healthy space in System Drive.
