Don't submit *two* bug reports as a question.  That's not what R-bugs is 
for, rather R-help.  And it is never necessary to send a report twice.

The answer to your question is that no one else has reported a change, and 
with XP Pro no one here has a problem.  I can suggest you look into your 
antivirus software, as there is a known problem with XP auto-update and 
most virus checking.
