    Just installed 5 Windows 7 updates - took 6 hours. Should it really take this long ?
    MacBook Pro Mid 2010. Sierra. 8GB memory.
    Patience getting stretched here ...........
    Any pointers ?
    Thanks
    (ps: new hard drive - because it was suggested that I might have had a "silently failing" drive - which was leading to slow responses. Not so sure any more).

    Just noticed - that since being fired up this morning Windows 7 has Read 50GB and written 25GB (according to Activity Monitor). Why ? Does it read the entire Virtual disk or something ?

    Doing the same today. 18GB read, 8 GB written - just sits there continuously reading / writing.......is this a Windows 7 feature or something to do with Parallels ?
