Modern Setup Host is Using My CPU & Resources

I noticed my computer all of a sudden running extremely slow.  Too slow for a developer to use efficiently.  I thought it was due to a Chrome update where my profile is now in the top window bar.  I installed a faster version of Chrome (the 64-bit version) and still had an issue with speed, but not as bad.  I had noticed a huge difference before by ending the process for Modern Setup Host so I ended it again.  Huge, huge difference.  Computer is back to normal after ending task on that Windows process.

I'm going to see what I can do to keep it from running at startup and add details later...

Okay... I went into the folder where it is located, C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources, and renamed the file hostsetup.exe to hostsetup.exex

Will post what happened when I restart next time...

Seemed to have taken care of the problem.

I've been getting an extremely large amount of traffic on this article since the rollout of Windows 10. I'm interested in knowing if this is an issue with Windows 10 and if it is solving whatever 'modern setup host' issue people are apparently having with Windows 10.
