Even after carefully avoiding all GWX updates , I notice that a resource hogging process runs as an svchost.exe for the first 5 minutes after booting . Process Explorer shows it to be a service called "AeLookupSvc" . Has anybody else seen this ? It appears to run only once per day and NOT once per boot and it starts a few minutes after booting , and runs for about 5 minutes , using up to 25% cpu and 1.5 GB RAM at it's peak !!! Killing the process causes a second windows update icon to appear in the notification area .... Weird ! I've done a fair bit of searching but I can only find conflicting information and advice , particularly in regard to removing or blocking this process. Some say blocking it will cause no ill-effects , others say the opposite. As a new member I don't think I can post links , but I could name the websites if that's any help. Have any other MDL members had this problem ?
