Installed this update Saturday and completely trashed my system. Being too stupid to realize what caused it, I fired up Norton Ghost and put a good image back on my HD, then promptly went to Windows Update and trashed it again. Thank you Microsoft!

U2Penn - ar you running an AV in the background (ie autoprotect) or running an AV at all? If not you will not see the decrease in speed.
