No, but the neighborhood cats will love you.
And possibly the local fire department.

After weeks of trying solutions I've found this one that worked.

Here's what I did:
- stopped WinUpdate service and installed KB3138612 OFFLINE
- rebooted
- stopped WinUpade again and installed KB3145739 and KB3153199, both OFFLINE
- rebooted

Then I checked for new updates and it took just about 10 mins.
Downloading new updates went right away and no more high CPU and RAM usage by svchost.
It's been 5 days now and so far problems are gone.

Hopefully this might help.
First of all, sorry for my English is not my native language.

I just thank you for sharing register for steps to solve the problem with windows update.

After a long time of looking for solutions fix your advice my case.

Thanks again and a hug from Mexico.

Apparently MS is said to be removing that requirement in the next few months so it will be accessible with any browser eventually.
Even some users using IE11 have said they're unable to access it though.

Hopefully they'll remove that quickly now that they're supposedly phasing out the Download Center. Otherwise some people are going to have less options to download some updates offline.
I can use a couple of other browsers to access MS Update Catalog but they "pretend to be IE11"

That's interesting Callender, what browser is that you're using? I've tried to use IETab extension in Chrome as that has different IE compatibility modes. It does open up the site with no problems, but when you click to download it won't go any further, there's no popup to download the files to Desktop.
Active X requirement has now been removed. Here's a screenshot from Opera 12.18 (Presto)
