The difference is that in Windows7 you can disable auto updates and you will never see constant 50% CPU, 100% HDD usage.
And 50% means 1 core fully utilized(100% core 0) with god knows what, slowing down the whole machine.
How can you have 50% CPU, 100% HDD on a machine that is doing almost nothing?

You can disable it with Pro with GPEDIT. Not sure about home. I think it can be disabled using 'shutup 10'....but anytime I set up a 10 system for a customer, it's always pro.

Well, gpedit options are limited to "notify before download and install". One click, and the updates start. The problem with GPEDIT is that contrary to the registry it's not easy to "export policy". This does not apply for domain connected computers, of course.

Local Computer Policy -> Comupter Config -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update

'Do not connect to any Windows Update Internet locations' -> enable
'Remove access to all Windows Update features' -> enable

Then:

Local Computer Policy -> Comupter Config -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Internet Communication Settings

'Turn off access to all Windows Update features' -> enable

Then run shutup 10 and disable all.

After that, windows update is done and 10 remains silent; doesn't download anything, doesn't ask about anything. There's a little more gpedit tweaking for other things, but above will kill windows update on Pro.

Thanks. Seems like I somehow missed this information. I also found the source
