High CPU during installation of Windows Updates

Recommended Posts


I'm using SAS Pro latest version 8.0.1042 on Win10 1903 - Build 18362.295 Pro x64.

I noticed that during the installation of Windows Updates (cumulative updates), SAS core service is showing a very high CPU usage in task manager. This slows down considerably these installations.

As soon as I disable temporarily the real-time protection (right-click on systray icon), the CPU usage goes back to normal (= very low) and the installations happen much more faster.

I don't remember having seen this in previous Win versions (1809 and beyond) ...

Is this normal ?

Thanks for your time and suggestions / advices ! :)

This sounds like expected behavior. You might want to try turning down the scan boost settings.
