Is anyone having HUGE performance problems with sp1??
my computer just freezes up after a while, it goes into some kind of proccessing loop, and I'm stuck staring at a frozen screen.; I can ctrl+alt+del do what ever i want, kinda... I can't bring up task manager(duh), when i click shutdown or logoff, it goes through teh whole, Program shutting down, either shut down now, or wait till shut down automatically, you know where that stupid bar gives you wime, then shuts down anyways... It does that for all teh programs i have running, it takes like 20 mins!!!
I hate sp1, my computer werkt fine without it...

same here the sounds are muffed up i aint got sp1 installed cuz its better without it. check out your cpu temps cuz when the cpu gets too hot it freezes for no reason cant move the mouse or notin. and i doubt sp1 is to blame

I installed SP1 on two diff systems, an xp1600 and a 1.4 t-bird... both are about 35% faster than before, and it has not locked up once.... got lucky I guess

mAsTa NoOdLe - if you took the option to create a backup when you installed SP1 - simply uninstall it using the Install/Remove Program and see if everything works okay again.

You may have just gotten some corrupt files when you downloaded SP1.

Then if everything is okay - either leave it alone or redownload SP1 and try it again.

Yeah me and my friend had a similar prob. we both had performance issuses after installing sp1, but after we did a clean install it worked fine again (better then ever) so we came up with the opinoin to just clean install before you decide to do the sp.:D

I had performance issues as well after SP1, I ended up removing alot of items from my run in the regsitry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE & HKEY_CURRENT_USER) now the system runs a lot better, some items were there before I installed SP1 and it seems some were added by the SP upgrade. I din't bother to troubleshoot to see which app was creating this problem, but there's a way to start if you wish to keep your current system as is and not do a clean install.

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
