    I'm a big fan of SSD. And I wouldn't be posting here if the Net-Integration forum was up.

    Anyways I had to do a system restore on my computer (XP pro) after updating 10/21/05. I got the latest includes file from MajorGeeks. The symptoms were that just about every program ran slower. An AV scan took 10 minutes longer. Even a scan with Spybot instead of 3 1/2 minutes took 6 minutes. Opening every program took like 5x longer. There's something wrong with the latest update.

    Thanks for the heads up my Moms , Microsoft antispyware expired and was going to tell her to d'/l Ssd . Guess its a trip to her house with my Giant . Wonder what caused it can you roll back with System Restore ? Or uninstall and use an older version .

    I'm Ok after the restore. First time SSD ever failed me. I'll try the update again in a couple days.

    You know peat moss, it just might be my experience. Not worldwide. That's why I posted this. To see if anyone else had troubles with this latest update.

    Well I think I found the problem & it's not SSD. Another program (CounterSpy) I've had for weeks now just started being a resource hog. I just disabled this other program from realtime protection & everything now seems fine.
    So I uninstalled CounterSpy & will try Trend Micro AntiSpyware. If I don't like that back to M$ AntiSpyware for me.
