Small System Delays after RECENT SERVER UPDATE

    Hello,

    I just ran the Windows Server Security Updates that came out within the last
    few days (June 20th-28th) on 3 Windows 2003 Servers.

    They are all in the same domain... 2 of them are getting lower on hard drive
    space on C: (200mb+ on each) and one has almost 1 Gb of hard drive space on
    C:.

    Since installing and restarting... I am getting delays in the following areas:
    1. Hit the IE button on quickstart and it stays pushed in.. and IE takes a
    good 30 seconds to pop up - unable to do anything else while waiting?
    2. Mozilla, on the same machine, will open up fairly quickly and the button
    does not stay down ... it immediately pops up.. and the machine does not
    'feel' frozen.
    3. Launching Control Panel is INCREDIBLY slow... a GOOD 30 seconds.....
    4. Choosing any FOLDER or OPTION under Control Panel is very slow.. ...
    basically, any option within the Windows Explorer, seems to be incredibly
    slow.. especially the first time it is selected.

    Any thoughts??? They will be greatly appreciated..

    thanks...

  2. How much memory [ram] is in your servers?
    When was the last time you defragged the servers?
    Have you looked at the event viewer logs for clues?

    I had a longer response written.... but, I realized that I had a network
    drive OFFLINE.. when I turned that drive back on... everything was running
    quick again... so, it was evidently looking for that drive and then finally
    timing out.. and launching whatever I requested....

    stupid mistake??

    thanks..
