    Hi there we have several different laptops, all newish and fully protected
    from malware and viruses connected to different SBS domains, they are
    unusable about 1 minute after logon and the svchost process uses 100% of the
    cpu for up to 6 hours. The cause is the automatic updates part of that
    svchost process, after disabling automatic updates the laptops run fine,
    however this is not an ideal situation. this all happened from about the
    17/18th of august. the only workaround seems to be to disable the automatic
    updates service, and all the while the desktops on these domains are fine.
    Any ideas ? thanks
