SP1 slows down computer

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that the SP1 pack slows down the computer. After installing SP1 on my WIndows XP Pro system when I come to open programs, ie Outlook, it takes longer to open them. There are 1 or 2 other bugs in there as well, especially with Kazaa.

Has anyone else noticed this problem?

I defraggged the hard drive a couple of days ago, after I installed SP1. It is very bizarre. I've found that if I open a program up from the short cuts on the desktop it takes a lot longer than it used to before I installed SP1, but if I click on Start > Programs then the program I want to open it opens really quick just like it used to.

It's only happening with Outlook and Flash FXP and only when I use the short cuts on the desktop

Very odd :(
