So you're advocating that customers of AMD's X2 avoid using Windows?
Sorry but to me this is a fault. Even if they can repair it with software, the X2 is not doing to well, sorry.
Really, of all your posts in this topic, you seem to completely ignore the point.
The reason for the DivX problems lies in the OS, which is having trouble dividing the load of four processes into the two cores of the AMD.
Now, the only reason Intel doesnt have this "fault" as you call it, is because of the HT.
Now really, you don't need any software patches or kernel fixes to solve this, is all about opening the task manager and raising the process priority of VirtualDub from "lower" to normal, it's that simple. Why they haven't done this already is a mystery, but someone, please hack into that AMD system and fix the priority, since THG doesn't seem to know how do it it...
