Windows Update Takes an Hour To Connect

I have a Thinkpad T420i.  I am running Windows 7.  I last updated it a month ago, and I am trying to update it now.  When I click on Windows Update the progress bar comes up, and the blue progress part moves from left to right.  The last time it took 45 minutes for it to return the updates.  Last night and today it has been running for an hour.  My machine was updated a month ago, so its not as if I have a billion updates needed.  I can't imagine why it is taking so long.  I am on a FIOS network, so network speed wouldn't seem to be the issue.  The computer is not loaded with a lot of applications.  Does anyone have any idea what the issue might be?  Many thanks.  Ken
