On a good day updates come up with only a short interruption in performance from svchost
Now the fun part installing them after making a system image which I already did yesterday

Yep I'm restoring back now,
On restart got a stuck black screen so I had to shut down with the power button and restart :/

Everything say installed... but it sure is not normal for it to happen like that ctrl+alt+delete... did nothing
Back to the drawing board
But a prime example of why we need system images now days

I hate to break it to you, but everything in this universe gets slower (and older) over time. Second law of thermodynamics, aka entropy. Once you accept this, life can be easier.

I find if I keep the junk out of my computers and control Startup and Non Microsoft services my system run as quick as always on Windows 7.
