When svchost process may occupy 100% cpu usage.

To cure the situation,

1) identify the greedy process by “process explorer”.

2) Greedy errorsome process may be the wuauctl.exe, windows autoupdate (WU)program. Microsoft Updater (MU) is not in consistence with previous WU.

3) Delete the file in the folder, C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore or delete the folder itself, Microsoft MPV said.  The folder may be not deleted for its currently usage.

Today it seems that the problem is solved by MS. However I write this post for whom need solution for XP cpu 100% usage problem. Anyway, “Process Explorer” is useful for diagonostic.
