I updated my XP home with SP1, now my internet speed has slowedx down significantly, prgrams like pc-cillin cannot log on to the update server at startup up, and my homepage www.mynetscape.com will no longer load. Has anyone experienced this?

My internet connection still works fine, but after I installed SP1, I was unable to use any of my mapped network drives. When I click on a drive, which is mapped upon login, I get the hour glass and it sits there, forever.

I'm also having issues connecting to network drives after updating. :(

I was using the VPN to work with no problems prior to sp1.

wanst SP1 ment to "fix" problems with XP and not create more problems

Looks like Billy boy screwed up again, you just know there will be a patch to fix the problems that SP1 created

I applied SP1 a few days ago and have experienced none of these problems. I still get my broadband and can make my VPN tunnel as effectively as ever.

But I sympathise with those who have been hit by it.

Could XP be a victim of it's own complexity?

I can't even install SP1. I downloaded it from M$ website and it just hangs after I click the next option to begin installing. And after hearing about all these problems I am a little leery to try to make it work. My philosiphy is simple, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
