It is actually pretty normal for Windows 7 to take 90 minutes or even 90 hours to run Windows Update since MS screwed it up in a way which requires manual intervention.

As for the Windows 10 machine, it sounds like a HP Stream or something with 32G flash space being filled up completely by Windows and Office updates (a common problem) so it can't do anything else.
