Windows 7: CPU load stays at 15% after windows updates

CPU load stays at 15% after windows updates

Just got a brand new Samsung Series 7 laptop and everything was working fine until i started installing windows updates. The cpu is now stuck at around 15% load and there's constant disk activity too.

I run msconfig.exe and disabled programs that i don't really use much, run disk defrag just too make sure the disk was working well.

As a result my cpu is running hot (65 degrees) and the battery drains pretty quick.

See what Process Explorer shows you. May be some clue there to what is causing the problem.

How to gradually pre-load Windows Updates in an install iso
I often fix other people's computers, and the most time-consuming, laborious and really effing annoying part of the process is waiting for Windows to do the updates, then rebooting, then waiting for it to do the updates it failed to do the first time around, then rebooting, et cetera. I'd much...
