Question Svchost.exe Takes 50% CPU With Microsoft Update Enabled ( TechArena Community Windows Update )

Svchost.exe Takes 50% CPU With Microsoft Update Enabled



I've just reloaded Win XP Pro SP2 on a couple of PCs and as part of my set up
routine I "upgrade" Windows Update to Microsoft Update. As soon as I did this
(on both machines) Microsoft Update hung on the first scan for updates and
svchost.exe started taking 50% of the CPU. When I switched off Microsoft
Update (in Windows Update settings) everything went back to normal. However,
I now can't automatically download the updates for the other Microsoft
software on these machines.

Can anyone help?

Thank your lucky stars that changing your default from MU to WU resolved the
problem. To keep MS Office fully patched, visit Office Update website after
the second Tuesday of the month:

Thank you Chewbacca and PA Bear, I'll try applying this patch and see what
happens.

FYI I can't download updates from the Office Update site, it triggers the
same problem.

Many thanks.

Svchost.exe Takes 50% CPU With Microsoft Update Enabled


I've having this same issue with few workstations in here.
I've read a lot on this problem and all fixes that I've come through aren't
working.

Yes, those computers of mine are rather old and on the very first try it
went down to 60-80% instead of a full 90-100%. The next day (22hrs) it went
back as usual and lock pretty much the user. Of course we are using WSUS 2
and yet, we cant configure when those computers should start to scan for
updates.

If I let the MU instead of WU, the comp scan just like for hours, that if I
go on the web site. So the option has been disabled and simply keep scanning
for windows update.

Anyhow, is there more than "see kb927891" as a solution?
Right now its a disable automatic updates. On weekend we start it up and
shut it down again on monday.

Cheers!
