    right click on the processor in the device manager and do a driver up date, i know it sounds stupid, but it worked on all the PC at work after updating the cpu's to dual core, and you may have to do this to the cpu listed under the computer as well, and make sure if your looking at the task manager that you have one graph per core clicked. hope this helps out

    But as I've mentioned a few months before, repairing an installation of Windows XP will result in breaking the Windows Updates function (if you've already installed latest updates and then repaired).
