New Microsoft Windows hotfixes to address issues installing and searching for updates

DOWNLOAD_thumb2We have a couple recent hotfixes for Windows that you’ll want to be aware of if you install Windows updates by using System Center 2012 Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr 2012 or ConfigMgr 2012 R2). The problems addressed with these hotfixes have the following symptoms:

– When you install Windows updates by using System Center Configuration Manager, the installation takes a long time to complete and Configuration Manager becomes overloaded.

– The Svchost.exe process consumes 100 percent of the CPU usage when you try to upgrade to Windows 10. 

You may also experience issues related to updates installed during a Configuration Manager Task Sequence.

For complete details as well as download and installation instructions, please see the following:
