    It happens sometimes. I have even seen updates for updates in the past. That being said I haven't had any slowdown with the latest updates. So far so good on my end.

    It could be due to .NET getting updated. Usually after the update assemblies need to be recompiled.

    Yes I am highly suspicious of .Net update I have seen.

    If you open task manager and see a process with the name mscorsvw.exe that is probably the issue.

    You have two options:

    1. Let the computer stay idle for around 15-40 min depending on your machine specs. (Higher will be faster)

    2. You can force the JIT compile process with the following command by opening a elevated command prompt and add the following:

    .NET version 4

    Code:
    c:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\ngen.exe executequeueditems
    for .NET versions 2.0 to 3.5

    Code:
    c:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\ngen.exe executequeueditems
    HTH

    Yes, I always have this after .net updates, mscorsvw.exe takes 100% of 1 CPU for quite a while.
