According to google this problem is usually fixed by clearing your windows log files, or by scanning for virus/spyware. But both of these did not help me at all. I am able to terminate it in the task manager and my computer immediately speeds up, but after some random period or time it reappears again... I've tried permanently disabling it in services but then my computer starts to have a lot of issues and error messages.

 

Anyone have any idea? This damn thing is taking up 40-50% of my CPU :(

Hi,

 

Open Services, locate Windows Update and stop the service. The CPU usage is now normal?

 

One way to open Services is:

- press Windows7_key_R2.pngand type services.msc
- locate Windows Update on the list of services, right click on it and click Stop

It's the Windows Update "bug" to avoid that and make the Windows Update client work better install the updates listed on this page http://wu.krelay.de/en/ that are applicable to your system.
