How much activity does the CPU and the disk have? (see Taskmanager)

Well, unless someone has some deeper knowledge, you're out of luck I'm afraid. There are updates available for Server 2012 that correspond to the ones available for Win7 and 8.1 (and their Server counterparts) but they don't contain a newer Windows Update Agent. I'm talking about the Servicing Stack update (KB3173426) and July 2016 Rollup (KB3172615).

WSUS Offline used to install KB2937636 when Windows 8.0 was still supported. It's a newer Update Agent, but it's rather old now. But you might want to give it a shot if it's not installed on your system.

The only thing I can think of is to install all available security-only patches since October 2016. You can get them via the Windows Server 2012 update history page. Note that monthly rollups are listed there, too.

Looks like i have to manually install patches now.
Is it ok if i manuall install updates from client folder? And what i should be careful of? As there are precedence constrains isnt it? Thank you very much for you help especially its weekend much appreciate it
