I finally installed the SP-1 update from Windows Update that my computer has been nagging me about for the last few months now, after a long time of contemplation. I have found that my computer is taking FOREVER to boot up as compared to before. I have Windows boot "NO GUI BOOT" (via MSCONFIG). And each driver it loads takes like 5 or 6 seconds and redraws the screen every time, strangely. Applications seem to hang for along time before they open and the internet is quite slow also. Are these common side-effects from SP-1 with easy fixes or should I roll back with System Restore? Thanks everybody.
The slow drivers occur here when I boot without a power cable (then it scrolls the thing up one line at a time),
I suggest you to NOT turn that option on in MSCONFIG.
The first boot after SP1 things are supposed to be slow as all caches/readyboost/... are cleaned by the install,
so it should go fine again after some boots.Do not use System Restore
to solve this problem, you could just remove the update this way:
- Click Start
, go to Control Panel
and go to Programs and Features
. (Where you uninstall programs)
- On the left side click View installed updates
and look for the Service Pack 1
- Do a right click
the update and select Uninstall
