Well, if MS did stop the updates, XP computers with the hack should get the
updates that were posted up to that stop date.

according to
https://www.zdnet.com/article/registry-hack-enables-continued-updates-

"Williams says that the hack, included just below, makes the system look
like Windows Embedded POSReady 2009 which will continue to receive
updated until April 9, 2019."

the period of which XP will recieve updates has elapsed. so is it worth
applying the hack? I would say no.

That only looks for corrupt system files that are normally unreachable
while the computer is running.

If one was damaged, it might affect how well your computer runs.
Typically those only get corrupt from a virus.
I may have the XP registry hack, if I do, I'll eMail it to you.

Registry hack that makes XP think it's a point of sale machine? I've
never heard of that one before. No, I don't think I installed that
one. The most recent thing I did with Windows is a SFC Scan, which
shouldn't have affected Outlook or any non Windows components. The
SFC Scan should make the machine run faster, right?

Anti-virus is all you need at startup.
Did you ever install the registry hack that makes XP think it's a
point of sale (POS) machine?
Microsoft continued with those updates to XP until at least last
April.
Also, you may want to consider booting to WinPE just to scan your
entire partition, sometimes viruses hide in the boot sector and
can't be detected while the computer is running.

The strange part is, it didn't start doing this until a couble
days ago. I have Automatic Updates turned off. The only thing I
know of that I have running besides JAWS is Microsoft Security
Essentials and Windows Defender. Other than that, when I look at
MSConfig, I find some programs in there that I'm not familiar
with what they do. Which programs should I have running at
startup that won't eat the CPU power?

Well, in that case, using such way out of date equipment and
software, it may take a computer technician to figure out what
is going on, but my guess is something is trying to update in
the background which no longer can be updated; or you have
something on there that is eating your CPU, but probably
something trying to update.

You might try disconnecting from the internet and see if that
solves it.

You are asking for major problems if it is connected to the
internet since none of the important software is supported at
this point.

Best of luck,

Richard

Hi, it's Annabelle.

Has anybody had this happen to them? I know this may be off
topic, but this strange thing just started happening, where
Outlook 2003 seems to think my CPU power is maxed out at 50%
which makes the fan spin faster, and I'm wondering if maybe I
should dust the inside of my machine with a Datavac. This has
never happened before, and I know that I've been running outlook
2003 with the same Spamaid addin, so I know it has nothing to do
with that. I tried turning off Microsoft Security Essentials,
thinking it had something to do with that, but nothing has
changed. I tried renaming "Outcmd.dat", but still nothing has
changed. What do I do next?
