    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?
