    High CPU/RAM usage from Windows Update

    Hi everyone, I'm not sure when this all started If I were to guess it was when I downloaded the Creators update for Windows 10. I'm basically having this issue where Windows Orchestrator service/Windows Update Is using up to 50% of my CPU and A lot of RAM. I'm not really sure how to approach this, I've tried researching different things and no luck. I would appreciate any help that can be Given thank you.

    Your Update History might show some failing update.

    It could also be worth doing a basic disk check e.g.
    Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) (includes SSDs); chkdsk c: /F - from an admin command prompt
