Archive: New Hotfix: Fix for Slow SCCM Patching and Windows 10 Upgrades on Win7/2008 Clients

systemcenter_logo_smallKB3102810 has been published by Microsoft to address two issues that are affecting Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 clients.

  • First issue: Windows Updates run slower than usual when using SCCM for patch management.
  • Second issue: When trying to deploy an in-place Windows 10 upgrade from Windows 7, svchost.exe takes 100% CPU utilization and the upgrade might fail.

This hotfix addresses an SCCM issue but is actually applied to the OS and not the SCCM client. To install the hotfix silently, use the following command:
