Stuttering on Windows XP

Note: I'm using a retail copy of the game, not Steam.
Hi. I had Max Payne installed a while back, played it a bunch and even install some really big mods. It was fine.

I just reinstalled it to do a playthrough of both games again (just got MP2 on Steam).

It's been stuttering a bit but not much, then I got to the second chapter and the stuttering seems to be getting worse.

Anyone know the problem?

Note: The manual even says "The game has been known to work on Windows XP, but has not been tested."

Man, in 2001 I woulda thought XP was the standard by then.

Max Payne 1 was released on July 23 2001
Windows XP was released on August 24 2001

I've played many times Max Payne all of them on Windows XP x86 without worries.

We have some info about stuttering games on different systems with multi cores (eg Frontlines: Fuel of war).

1º Did you try using latest official patch?
2º Did you try using last No CD patch?
3º What's your specs?

The steam game is already patched up to the latest official version, you don't have to update it. If you do, you are installing the 1.05 update for the CD version of the game and you will be asked for the CD to play, or you will need to use a no-cd, but that's illegal. So it's pointless to install the 1.05 update on the steam or d2d game, as it's only for CD releases.

Try to disable Hyperthreading on bios and run it again.
