Windows 7 Ultimate 64

Compaq Presario CQ62


Laptop was running very slow so I saw in Task Manager that svchost was taking up all my CPU. Found the culprit to be the Windows Update Service. I can turn it off then search for updates and watch it bog down again. I ended up disabling the service and all is well. However I would like to get this figured out so I can stay updated. Any suggestions?
