Windows Update Causes CPU Usage To Spike

The woes of recent Windows Updates just keep dragging on. After the latest update, some users are reporting CPU usage spikes. Its not all systems, but apparently there is some sort of conflict with certain chipsets. What’s more, many users are reporting orange screens. That’s not a malfunction like a a blue screen of death either. Instead users are saying their screen are taking on an orange cast after the update was applied (shown above). I could see where that would be annoying. Microsoft has not yet acknowledged which systems are affected.
