I had a different issue after Wednesdays updates. Two win2k computers in
my office were rendered useless after the patch. They were fine before,
but as soon as the patch finished and the PC was rebooted, the CPU usage
was 100% and nothing could be done. I left both PC's sitting for about 20
minutes and the 100% CPU usage never came down. Another coworker said he
had the same issue with his home PC and he was eventually able to get into
the task manager and noticed that the system process was taking up 99-100%
of the CPU.

Anyone else experience this issue?
