    SP2 causing serious slow downs

    Hello:
    I found out here in AO that there was an issue regarding dell laptops and winxp sp2:
    Here

    I followed Dell's instructions and updated the BIOS to the latest version and then installed sp2. I am sure this laptop is free of virus because of a fully updated Norton AV, scans from Trendmicro's housecall and its got no spyware(spybot + adaware). Thing is boot time and overall performance of the laptop is about 10 times slower than it used to be. Could sp2 be the cause?

    cheers,

    j

    What programs have you got running at startup?
    is the slowness boot to desktop
    - general operation
    - Boot to logon
    - Specific applications..
    - Shutdown
    - exiting all programs
    - Exiting certain applications
