System process using 99% of CPU after installing latest MS update

Posts: n/a
I have Windows XP Home SP-2, I just got a new dell, automatic updates
installed some updates and I restarted and then the process "System"
(not system idle) starting going up to 99% of CPU.

I heard that there was a problem with WIndows 2000 computers, but i
have XP and it must be the same.

I'm 99% sure that it is the update, is there a hotfix for this?
