  • Just to be sure, all systems have the runtime key installed? I would assume so.

    If you disable Windows update does the problem go away?

    If you change the power plan to high performance does the performance improve?

  • Just to be sure, all systems have the runtime key installed? I would assume so. Yes

    If you disable Windows update does the problem go away? Yes it is definitely Windows Update.

    If you change the power plan to high performance does the performance improve? Yes but Windows Update is still consuming one cpu core.

  • What is the processor and how much memory is in the system? I am assuming all 100+ systems are the same.

  • Celeron 1037U and 2GB. This is a Microsoft Windows Update problem. If I apply the January rollup manually the problem goes away.

  • If there was a way to up the memory and processor, it might help with CPU usage. As such, you are correct that it probably is how Windows update is running.

    If the January update fix a bug that would be the answer. The only suggestion I have is to contact Microsoft directly or through your distributor to get a support ticket in to see if there is a fix.

  • I am having the same problem with POSReady 2009.

    Where can I find the security rollups to update manually?

  • If you are an OEM of the device you can get updates through the secure Microsoft MyOEM site. If you are not the OEM, you will have to go back to the manufacturer to get updates.

  • Good Morning,
    Did this mentioned update address your issue in Windows XP?
    I use Windows XP (SP3) and MS Office 2007 (SP3).

    Thank you.
