Windows Server 2016 Updates slow

Windows Server 2016 updates slow?

Try disabling Real-Time Windows Defender Scanning during install:

Set-MpPreference -DisableRealtimeMonitoring $true

If this makes your updates quicker, you can permanently add an exception for the Windows Update folders:

  • C:\Windows\CbsTemp
  • C:\Windows\Logs\CBS
  • C:\Windows\SofwareDistribution

Remember to enable Real-Time Scanning after done!

Set-MpPreference -DisableRealtimeMonitoring $false
