I turned on my laptop today, and not long after, began hearing phantom vacuum sounds.
I checked task manager, processes.
That b!tch wuauserv is at it again.

The gist of the problem is that wuauserv (Windows Update process) takes up 50% of the disk processes (100% on my disk) and doesn't stop. You try manually searching for updates and it goes on searching, ad infinitum. My laptop overheats quickly, the fans go crazy, and renders my laptop unusable.
I never really received a solution to my problem last time. It just went away eventually (although I tried loads of things, and any one of them might have cleared it up).
I don't feel like dealing with this again, so I disabled Windows Update for the FINAL time.
I'm curious if anyone else is having problems with it (again).
