    windows update kb5003537 computer slow after this update


    My computer got really slow after performing this update. Programs either run sluggish or wouldn't open. Is there a bug with this update? I uninstalled the update and windows run normal again.

  2. Do windows updates slow down the computer?

    Very late to this one . . . but of course Windows Update slows your computer. It's not rocket science. Updates are patches . . . added code. The more code your computer is required to read and process, the longer it's going to take to do it. The more bloated the code, the more RAM it requires.

    Or let me put it another way: most people update or replace their computers because they are 'getting slow'. Computers don't get tired with age - what could possibly be slowing them down?

    Windows Update and driver updates are the worst culprits. And the general advice to always update software and drivers is misguided.

    There are a million different configurations of PCs in the world. Microsoft and other manufacturers cannot test the software on every spec. Over time problems are discovered running software on specific hardware. e.g. Windows 10 running Firefox from an SSD, using intel HD graphics on an AMD dual core processor will hang if Adobe is installed.

    Microsoft or Intel with issue a patch to fix this. This patch will installed on every machine regardless of its configuration. So, even if you don't use Firefox, have an SSD or a dual-core processor your machine will run whatever patch code to accomodate the non-compliant configuration - thus slowing the system down.

    New poster revives 4 month old thread that doesnt appear to be an issue anymore one way or the other. Seems legit.

    Do windows updates slow down the computer?

    Not a clear enough question (EarthDog beat me to it while I was typing). As P4 correctly noted, while the updates are being applied, it is like performing any task on your computer, the process utilizes CPU and RAM resources which can affect the performance of other tasks that are running.

    But once the update has been applied/installed, and any housekeeping is done (like a reboot), performance should return back to normal (or even improve).
