Custom installed win 7 32 bit SP1 on a Emachine E625 with 4 GB RAM, all worked well and activated windows. Noticed that automatic updates would not work and kept getting error messages 1st error was 80244019 then all errors were 80070005, then no errors but auto updates just kept running without downloading anything.
Noticed in Task manager that the process svchost.exe was using 100% cpu. went to Services & Resource Monitor and discovered that wuauserv was the CPU hog. I stopped the update service wuauserv and CPU usage went back to normal, i.e. 0%, but of course Automatic Updates will not work. I've searched everywhere for a solution, including this forum, but nothing works from multiple virus scans using several antivirus programs to Microsoft Fixit to Windows Update diagnostics to resetting automatic update components, etc.
Can anyone help, this is perplexing?
