I think that one's relatively new - but it's always been part of the Ts&Cs.

Noticed that one and feels to me it had always been there at least for the past two years, this i am sure. Perhaps it came with SP1 too?

This tut Windows Update Settings - Change has images with that info. I'm not sure if the images were updated since the 2009 publish date. However, post #6 shows the info and that post is from March 2013.

.NET optimization service has to run after installation of .NET updates. This can take up a lot of time/memory usage. I try to install the .NET patches by themselves (Other important ones first), wait if safely possible, install .NET updates when I have a few hours.

Agreed.

My PC churns for ages after any .NET updates have been installed.

I had 100% CPU and seemingly too much RAM being used. I noticed that the RAM usage went up to the max on my VM - 2GB and kind of bounced off of there.

BITS was disabled, so I reenabled.
I tried the updater troubleshooter with little success.
I removed the windows update files SoftwareUpdates.log and catroot2.log
I ran sfc, though no problem found.
Still was not updating and the symptoms did not change.

I think what really fixed my problem was downloading the June 2015 Update Agent. After installing it, though my CPU went to 100% at times, the disk was active and memory never went much above 1GB of use. It still took a long time to catchup with updates. As long as the disk, CPU, and network changed patterns occasionally I let it keep running. I monitored through Resource Manager. Finally Windows update told me I had 54 to install. It did all that and was finally successful. There is the possibility that I just never had waited long enough though I had let it go for six hours before without succeeding. This time it took about an hour to finish the verification / reconciliation.

Much happiness and rejoicing.

I agree with NoelDP's assessment.

Although nev didn't say how much RAM the machine has, it is probably 8 gig. If he has windows update set to Download updates but let me choose whether to install them, & then doesn't install them, windows update downloads them each & every time you start that computer. You can watch RAM load up with updates (task manager performance tab).

If you have clean install or repair install there are currently 200 updates & 13 optional updates that appear, win7x64 HP w/sp1. With 4 gig of RAM the updates will continue to download, the RAM will continue to fill & at about 160-170 updates you get out of memory error every time.

My suggestion would be to set windows update to Download updates but let me choose whether to install them, install the important updates (obvious security reason), pick & choose the optional, & hide the ones you don't want & they won't download any more. (concern regarding telemetry tracking?) Currently there are 19 optional updates that are telemetry related win7x64 HP.

If he sets windows update to Check for updates but let me choose whether to download & install them, windows update doesn't start downloading & filling RAM.

Telemetry tracking:

nev, if you want to uninstall any or all of the above KB's you can make a simple batch file (in notepad) just repeating this code & inserting different KB number in the save or save as dialog box Save as type choose>All files and add .bat. To run double-click or right-click choose>run, to edit, right-click choose>edit

If update isn't installed, it simply continues.
