Hey guys

been following this thread..have any of you who have been experienced this problem tried this out..Microsoft apparently released a patch several years ago for this very issue

Isn't that already integrated in SP3?

Iv'e had this issue on an old PC at church that was never online. Installed internet access the PC updated to SP3 and all the updates.

But still every day it would do this 100% thing, until I turned off auto updates.

Tried every thing  I could find to fix it finally gave up, as soon as we can get some donations for a new system bye bye XP.

Back from todays rounds, one of which was a lady in her 80's with a P4 Dell. "Running really slow" This is an eight year old install, guess what, 100% cpu cause by WU?

This, I'm sure now is not an old issue, or the same as an old issue, MS have done something. My previous post experiment with clean builds and now another in the field.

Proof enough for me.

Perhaps done on purpose to have people move up to newer OS? I dont believe much in conspiracy but I would not put it past them.

This happens iwith XP mode too. I was trying to install / update it, to make an up to date XP ISO.

 

I noticed svchost.exe was 100% constantly. I couldnt update it, without it freezing. The only thing that was installed was XP mode / with XP3.

 

Tried WSUS offline. it was fine but didnt update everything. Well, I couldnt figure out how to make it update everything. Even tho, I downloaded all the updates with it. And created an ISO with it

 

Altho, I dont know what happened after I installed XP mode. Not only would it not update, but later I found out that the BITS and Auto update services were borked (one / or both were corrupt somehow, or some files didnt register properly / files were missing). In the end, I gave up trying. It just took too long for it to do anything

good news is that in six months someone will release an unofficial SP4 with all the updates rolled up into one nice package and slip streamed into an install disc.

Hi to all  :)

 

I found a solution !!!

 

1. Install fresh copy of Windows xp sp3

2. Install Internet Explorer 8  (without updates !!!)

3. Install this update kb2870699

 

 

 

And you are done :) No more 100% usage of svchost.exe
