    This does seem to relate to some of the issues some people have had with the "installer". My suggestion would be to turn off the automatic updating and check it manually.

    This was happening to me. I ran the updater fix and then set updating to manual and havent had an issue since.

    Even though I havent ran into this issue, I may make the changes to avoid any issues.

    I don't have overheating but I am always on the lookout to improve my PC.

    I don't really need automatic updates as I'd rather check them on my own anyway. I went into settings and changed it to 'never check for updates'. Is this the correct way to do it?

    Also, what is this updater fix? Do I download it from somewhere?

    Maybe something good is afoot here. I think I got the exact same results as baghead did.
