I am running 4.6.731, but I have no idea when this problem started, it has been for about 2 months. Around that time, I noticed several times a day my computer would just freeze for about 2-4 minutes. The hard drive would be thrashing like crazy, everything stopped.
I eventually narrowed it down to the autoupdate feature. I changed it so it would only update once a day, but it still did it several times a day.
I eventually had to shut auto update off, and now only do updates whenever I remember. Whenever I do a manual update, it is similar. Whole computer is utilized for several minutes.
Any ideas? Thanks.
