LUALL.EXE (Live Update) consumes 95-100% CPU Usage

Created: 23 May 2008 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 2 comments
Running SEP 11 MR2, some, not all, PC's are running dog slow, processes show luall.exe at almost 100% CPU usage, it never finishes. I had to reboot to safe mode and uninstall Liveupdate, then the problem goes away.
 
I tried re-installing liveupdate after uninstalling it on ome of the SEP clients, same problem.
 
I have seen some other posts on this topic but no good solution.

Tech support says they are aware of the issue and it will be fixed in MR3 releasing soon.
 
The short term solution is to uninstall LiveUpdate from the client.

I want to know 2 things before I can try to find the reason:
1. What is the hardware configruation of you.
2. Is there any operation special you have done may result into such an issue?
