    When my clients download the updates from the WSUS-server, the PC becomes
    extremely slow. With SUS i did not have that problem. It seems that F-Secure
    is causing it. Where are the updates stored locally at the client? I want to
    exclude that map in the virusscanner.

    Thanks in advance,

    The downloads goes to %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Download\ (in

    There is also some activity in the
    %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\ folder structure

    (%windir% is typically C:\Windows or C:\Winnt)
