Windows 10 is regularly serviced with quality and security updates which apply on top of the large feature updates. While these generally go smoothly, some updates can cause more issues than they solve – such as when KB4512941 massively increased CPU consumption on some devices.

Windows lets you see which updates are installed on your PC, so you can identify if your device has received a problematic one. Begin by opening the Settings app and clicking to the “Update & Security” category.
