When I start up early morning
Lap top
windows xp home edition
chrome browser
MSE security
for the first 20/30 mins PC is very slow
Listed in the processes shown in task manager is
wuaclt.exe The peak usage is up to 244MB
When this disappears all is well
Subsequent start ups during day no problem

I think the problem has occurred since last windows update Tuesday
I also think that the process is scanning the computer
Any ideas please
