I'm having problems with windows update svchost.
Update will not check for updates, or downloads show 0 downloaded. Previously a whole batch were downloaded but shown as cancelled in history. One of the updates is windows 7 sp1, but it is already installed.
After stopping update, svchost keeps running and uses 50% or more of cpu, slows everything down and fan keeps running. The only way I’ve found to stop this svchost is to restart.
I have reinstalled windows and the ultimate factory reset with no luck. I have run mbytes, avast and rkill but no problems found. Also chkdsk and sfc scanow.
I have tried to find how to remedy the problem on the net, but I can’t understand it, old age I’m afraid. Can anyone help PLEASE, in plain easy to follow language
Would be very grateful
