  1. It's quite simple and doesn't really need assistance from any tool. Just go to Settings -> Update & Security -> Windows Defender and then switch off all options there. That's it!
  2. I'm glad that my small tip helped you to fix your problem.
  3. Firstly, as you mentioned in the previous message that after you stop Windows Update, your CPU is back to normal. So I can jump to a conclusion that it's the cause. As for your question, software distribution is a folder that Windows uses to store all downloaded files of Windows updates. It will use those files to install and update your Windows OS to fix bugs or add more features. By deleting this folder and reboot your computer, you will refresh the download process again and force Windows to re-download those files. The point is that sometimes those files are corrupted and so Windows can't install updates. That's why it's stuck and cause this high usage issue. You can try to delete that folder and let me know whether the problem is fixed or not.
  4. Hi Airbus, Have you tried to delete SoftwareDistribution folder yet? I would recommend doing so. Get back to me the result. Also, Update Troubleshooter is good option to try too. http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9830262
  5. I'm glad that the tip I found helped you to fix this irritating issue.
  6. So, it's because of Windows Update. According to what I found in this post and some other recommendations in answers.microsoft.com support community, the first step you need to do is to restart this service: wuauserv. Sometimes, restarting it will also help to fix the problem. If the problem remains, you can refresh it by removing the SoftwareDistribution directory that's located at C:\Windows. However, if you want to remove this folder, you need to stop wuauserv from running. Otherwise, it will alert you that it's using by another application and won't let you remove it. If removing the SoftwareDistribution directory can't help too, use a free tool from Microsoft, called Windows Update Troubleshooter. You can download it here. After downloading, use it to diagnose whether your Windows Update got any problems. If it found, it will help you to fix it. Besides, an outdated version of Windows Update sometimes can cause a few irritating problem, like this one. You should update it frequently. http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/949104 Let me know if your problem is resolved.
  7. To know which caused this error, you can right click on it and stop one by one. If your CPU is back to normal after stopped any of them, then it's definitely the cause.
  8. I've encountered the same issue last two weeks, so to assist you easier, can you use Task Manager or Process Explorer to find out which Windows service stands behind the svchost.exe that you mentioned? To do that, bring up Task Manager, click on the "Details" tab. Then, select svchost.exe, right-click on it and choose "Go to service(s)". It will show you all Windows services that related to that svchost.exe process. Just list them out!
  9. In my opinion, Intel Core i7-6700k Skylake is enough. You should upgrade to GTX-1080
  10. I've encountered this problem one time. In this case, I would recommend resetting Windows Update. It may help.
  11. Can you upload the minidump file? Or you can also diagnose yourself by downloading BlueScreenViewer.
  12. You can remove that driver out of your computer, it will help to resolve the issue.
  13. Download the .dll file here, put it in the place and remove them. Then try to install it again. https://www.dll-files.com/gameuxinstallhelper.dll.html
  14. What kind of DLL errors you got? Can you show me the full error message? Or just take a screenshot of it!

    Me too, I never use Windows Update to update the driver for important parts, like graphic card.
