How did I know it was patch time? My computer practially stopped as svchost.exe and WU processes sucked 100% CPU for near enough 15 min.

I have the same exact issue on several computers. Are you using "Windows Update" or "Microsoft Update"? I hear M.U. is the culprit.

I only hope they don't start crippling XP's kernel and the rest of the system in the future in order to give Vista artificial advantage in speed and performance. :(

But you say the performance has increased. That is a nice to hear!

There is a new Kernel update 5.1.2600.3093 28 Feb 07 for XP SP2 and a new build number in WinVer.
