Windows 7: wuauserv cpu and memory high no error

wuauserv cpu and memory high no error

Hello sevenforums
I have an update issue I can not resolve. I have always manually updated. 12/12/15 I did a partial update and when I went to do the remaining update I got a high cpu and memory during checking for updates. No error just keeps searching. Not trying to upgrade to WX.

I did all troubleshooting Microsoft Answers. Manually updated windows update agent (wuauclt 7.6.7601.19077). I end up resetting with Shawn's Batch file Reset_Windows_Update_Full.

Windows Update - Reset .

It seem to work but when svchost wuauserv started waiting on svchost LocalServiceAndNoImpersonation cpu went 100% and memory 71% and just hung there. Had to stop wuauserv. only one svchost file in sys32.

It seems my 46.4 MB is to large to upload?

Just did the upgrade

Never mind
I just upgraded, it was going to happen, one way or another. Paid for a license, or free. I can update now and cpu and memory are low. Ugly smart phone theme for a desktop but it runs good once apps are uninstalled and those that can't be disabled.

chkdsk high memory usage / memory leak
Has anyone else noticed that chkdsk uses all available physical memory (if you let it run long enough)? I find that if I run chkdsk and watch the memory usage in task manager it jumps by about 50MB every 2 seconds or so until it either finishes or hits around 3.2GB at which point my physical...

wuauserv causing svchost memory usage to explode
To be honest, I started out investigating the wrong thing. This all started because I would have errors in Chrome. The Aww, Snap or It's Dead Jim errors, etc. Or Chrome would just crash and I would relaunch and restore. I did normal Chrome things like check the shockwave and flash files, disable...

Very high physical memory usage, no high usage programs running
