A
Windows service "Automatic Updates" - Enables the download and installation of critical Windows updates. If the service is disabled, the operating system can be manually updated at the Windows Update web site.

Execution command: C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs

If you don't need Microsoft update center to tell when Windows updates are available, you can disable "Automatic Updates", freeing up at least 6MB of memory.

Follow our Disabling Windows Service tutorial, if you want to disable this service.
