So I have this other computer that has WIndows XP on it, wanted to use it and had problems with it being very slow….
Followed the Tango twice. I determined that for some reason one of the versions of SVCHOST.EXE was using 98% of the system.
I see a lot of links on this issue…still trying to figure how to correct it and when I tried to download any further MS updates, the icon goes away and nothing happens…and yes as Admin…and no, auto updates is not on…
I can resolve it by using task manager and end process it and then the machine seems fine….
Kind of confusing as to the links i Have come across and what to do, everything from try this, download that and perform some mystical ceremony involving wizards, witches and a tech support guy from off shore
