Windows 7 Clients have high memory usage due to Windows Update

Last Modified: 2015-06-17
In the process of Migrating from SBS 2003 to a W2012R2 Essentials server.
I have migrated the data and uses and the major thing left is migrating the users re0directed folders.

However just after I have gotten all of the computers joined to the new server, and I have removed all but the Redirected folders GPO, The Windows update on all of the clients computers (Windows 7) have gone crazy and take large amounts of memory (over 1Gb in some cases.)

Any ideas or suggestions.

On the W2012 server I have set the updates to be dome via the Microsoft site, not a local WSUS server.
