Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

There have been so many issues with high cpu usage I lost count

But one thing that has cured the majority is making sure those updates are installed
How to tell

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bits 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

WU is a pain in the a*s.
But dust in the ventilator or the CPU is a main problem also.
The CPU will downgrade when it becomes to hot.
Blow it out with a pressed air bottle.
WU is better manually done when you decide to leave it for a while.
Automatic search for updates is using far to much resources.

Windows index search is also a CPU killer.
