It's the best version of Windows that Microsoft has developed. As much as I no longer have support, I can't stop using it :')

Windows XP outperforms everything in a virtual-machine environment. Every newer version of Windows requires something above 2 GiB of RAM for the VM, while Windows XP needs only about 256 MiB. Even every Linux distribution I've tried is the same inefficiency (I know, I'm doing it wrong).

Solution for SVCHOST 100% CPU

about Windows XP and Internet Explorer · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

Of course everybody using Windows XP knows the problem about Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer and the svchost which take the CPU to %100.

To resolve this problem I killed the processes svchost and wuauclt.exe, then I searched on the web for Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (KB2898785) [MS13-097] to download the patch by myself, so I found the Security Bulletin from Microsoft: at the section Affected and Non-Affected Software you have to choose your Windows and Internet Explorer version and download it in your language.
Install it (it's a simple exe file) and restart your PC. After this svchost will not give you other problems.

I hope this helped :)
