Hey guys firstly thanks for aal the work and afford that you put into investigating all the KB updates that MS brings out.
But i have a problem for a very long time, and i´m not sure what the best way of fixing it is.
i have set my windows update setting to "search for updates, but let me decide wenn if i want to download and install them".
But now svchost.exe keeps consuming 1.9GB of ram and 13% cpu for more then 7 hours a day doing nothing.
I did looked at what particular service this was causing, and the service was wuauserv update service.
Because wenn i stop that particular service, everything goes back to normal again.
After allot of google searches i found that this issue is most likely related to a problem with the wsus update client.
And MS had released a fix for it back in July the KB3050265.
But wenn i checked the list of bad updates in the op of this thread, that particular update is noted as bad, because it would accept the upgrade to windows10.
But what does that exaly mean?
I also found out, that KB3050265 has been replaced by several other versions of the windows update client, on which the KB3135445 is the very latest i think?
But also that update is listed as bad, and containing the windows10 upgrade preperation.
My question is, wenn i install one of those update client patches, what do they exaly do?
Do they just list the bad windows10 updates which i can manualy choose to hide and not install?
Or do they enable bad telemetry tracking in the background, and trying to force windows10 onto my system.
Its realy frustrating, that MS is obviously bugging the windows update service for people that dont want to upgrade to windows10.
But wuauserv holding hostage of svchost.exe for more then 7 hours consuming allmost 2GB of ram is just annoying.
Anybody knows what would be the best fix for my situation?
I know that manny people had this problem in the past, and claimed that the windows update client patches fixing the issues.
But i dont want any windows10 crap on my system.Or do you guys maybe know any other safe update that solves my issue?
Because i'm getting sick of it, allready dealing with this crap for 8 Months or so.
Sometimes it only take 2.5 hours, but today after 7 hours it was still going.
Then i just disabled searching for updates all together.
But i know thats not a good fix, i have 16GB of ram and an 8 core cpu in my main system, so its doesnt hurt me that much.
I´m still very mistrustful, and as long as that **** is going on in the background, i dont feel comfortable to use my system for anything i need to login for.
Because i dont know what its exaly doing atall, and what information it might send to MS.
