Permanent fix for wuaueng.dll high CPU usage issue?
Wondering if there is a permanent fix to "wuaueng.dll+0xa4f42" using all the cpu aside from disabling Automatic Updates in msconfig? Been hunting around for awhile but havent come up with anything yet....
Save SINO to your desktop and run SINO.exe. (If you downloaded the ZIP version you will need to extract it first)

Once checked, hit the Run Scan! button and wait for the program to finish the scan.
A notepad window will pop up. Please copy all of the content into your next reply.
