Hello Experts!@

Background: I've been converting our corporate infrastructure from "physical machines" to "virtual machines" (P2V) and for the most part this has been going well. However, I ran across and incident with an NT 4.0 Terminal Services Edition machine where the CPU was maxed out a 100% on the new/migrated virtual machine. After some research I found this article: and was able to follow the procedure and change certain files and now the CPU runs at a normal rate.

So, the question is this:

Does the procedure in this KB Article ( apply to Windows 2000/2003 servers as well? If not can you point me to the procedure to follow?
