Last couple of days, since monthly windows update, computer is using 95-100% of cpu while hung up on wuauserv and updates won't load/install. wuauserv is disabled so computer can operate normally.
Have used different search terms and read MANY pages with many fix solutions.
Anyone know of one that actually works?

I've encountered this a few times.. If you do some of the fixes.. They LEAD to this problem. but, only once.

If you go in and clear the SoftwareDistribution folder.. Windows Update has to redownload everything.. If you're an anti-vaxxer.. On Win7.. Last I saw.. There's somewhere around 210 updates that it has to catalog.. I've seen it take 3 hours searching for all the updates if it's been cleared, or is a new machine. Admittedly.. These are on some rather crappy machines..

I'd start the windows update procedure.. Searching for updates (not installing) before you go to bed one night and check it the next morning.

No, but is is Windows update. There have been issues with Windows 7 and 8 updates for many months now. There are a number of fixes.

I have limited resources and can't do win 10, besides, in research I found that win 10 has problems with wuauserv and there are fixes for it already.
Problem started a few days ago with the August patches. Most patches were loaded but would not install. A couple of patches failed download. I went into softwaredistribution and deleted all lines after 7/13/16 [the last patch update] and installed Microsoft fix it 50202. Still no fix. When I click check for updates, the previous updates are gone and the green bar just searches and searches forever. I now have wuauserv on disable and windows update on never check so the computer will operate. I'll try the KB check from the InfoWorld article. Too many of the fixes I looked at involved registry changes. I'm not ready for that.

o p update- researched the 6 kb's listed in the InfoWorld article. No need to download them. Just go to windows update installed page and look for the numbers. They are all recent with the last one being 7/13/16 I've had all 6 installed and has made no difference in ability for updates to load.

After fixing everything there is to fix, I reset update to search. After a few minutes, I received an error message. 8024402C The proxy server or target server name can not be resolved. I assume that means there's a problem with the MS update server. Clicked try again and got nothing, just keeps searching. Since the search consumes 95% of the cpu, I reset search to never search.
