After installing SP2 from the update site, overall system performance dropped\nby a considerable amount. what used to take 3~4 seconds to load would now\ntake 10~15 seconds or more. Booting windows is now taking forever, i can\nfinish eating an apple before it even loads the background. IE explorer also\nruns very slow!!! though mozilla and firefox do okay. I really don't know\nwhere to start correcting this problem. everything's pretty up to date:\ndrivers, bios, program updates/patches. so far, the applications are all\nworking, but very slow compared to what i used to get. any help or\nsuggestions would be appreciated.
