Win2000 Critical Update slowing PC to a snail's pace. Have you seen it?

Hi,
I've done the latest Win2000 Critical update to 2 other PCs WITHOUT this problem.
As it is virtually inpractical to try out different "thoughts", please respond only if you have seen and know of a solution to my problem.

Problem:
I do the latest Win2000 Critical update, successfully.
When I try to re-boot, it's really really slow. Takes a while to get to the "desktop" and is virtually frozen as it processes the rest of the booting at a snails pace. The CPU is being utilized 100%, system is taking 99 and taskmgr is taking a couple now and then. It behaves the same in Safe Mode also. In safe mode, it took maybe 15 minutes to re-boot.
I have to restore totally from backup.
p.s. I did the update a couple months back with the same result. I tried again now to see if it made any difference. No chance.

Thank you,
Phil

does seem to describe the problem. Although I'm not keen on the temporary hotfix mentioned in the article.
For drivers mentioned in article,
Ipsecw2k.sys - don't have
Imcide.sys - don't have
Dlttape.sys - exists in winnt/servicepacks/i386/ directory

What is the best course of action?
1. delete dlttape.sys? what uses it?
2. install other critical updates EXCEPT for 835732? Can I do that?
