The bump here, speaking about updates.
I went to get the new year 2018 up-to-date. I wasted entire evening, around 2.5 hours VIA batch updating Xp OS on my rig, and I did only those between April 2014 - December 2017 not all of them, those older being already installed... and I won't mention time for building all requirements and downloading required KB files, eh... sometimes patience is helpful... majority are SecurityUpdates and very few are HotFix types, then some Critical ones...

Here's an interesting twist that I heard about on TV. There's something going on, or wrong with Intel processors. They can be fixed but the fix slows them down a lot.

I may not have that exactly right. Anyone care to clarify what is happening?

And does this mean I should consider an AMD processor for my new PC I hope to have built by next May?
I'm a man........but I can change........if I have to........I guess
