Clean install of Windows 7 x64 takes forever to search for updates

Not sure why, but windows update takes forever to search on a clean install. I did lots of clean installs of Windows 7 before, but never had an issue with receiving updates. But this time, it just doesn't go further in receiving updates.

I don't have any firewalls or antivirus programs installed on this system. Just fresh install of windows 7. Tried both pro and enterprise versions with same result.
