I have an oldie-but-goodie-build-your-own system, Pentium IV, 2 GHZ, 1G RAM, etc. Just swapped out a bad CD burner with a new one, then installed a wireless router. Now my CPU is always at 100%, task manager shows 5 instances of svchost.exe running. Somewhere in the middle of all this, XP wanted to download and install updates, so I tried to do so, but not sure if it succeeded. I read about an issue with Microsoft Update that can cause this and tried some fixes suggested but no dice. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
