    There have been reports of XP SP1 slowing down some user's systems. There is a patch to fix this, I just don't know which one. There are too many. Just download all the patches/updates from the Windows Update site until there 0 critical updates left. Also DL any of the 'Windows XP' updates you may need/want.

    SP1 fixes ALOT of major bugs and vulnerabilites. It's a must for any XP user.

    just go and get the rest of the Critical Updates. The fix patch should be in there.
    Then go defrag and all that...do a boot sector defrag if your prog. has that option.
