Posted in Windows

I have noticed that newly installed Windows 7 for a long time looking for an update, after the start of the search can be easily 2-3-4, and even more hours of drinking tea and a walk, and not the fact that the update will be found. Well if only updates’ve been looking for, so Windows system, this significantly hampers, svhost ship the processor by 50% or more, and eats memory. This situation is observed for a long time:

Sometimes the update search process continues endlessly, sometimes completed by various errors, and sometimes a few hours after the update are located. Since I reinstall Windows and then rarely attached no importance to this issue.

I tested it on two notebooks, and indeed the problem was solved. Windows updates are detected quickly and the load on the processor at the same time is minimal.
