Anyone noticed increased boot time, and somewhat of a delay in starting
any program after installing SP1? (HPx64)

Not I, on any of my three machines here.

Nor I. Boot-up time seems to be exactly the same as before. I notice no
change of any kind after the Service Pack install.

Yes (increased boot time) and no (starting a program).

Nope.

Boot time is less than it was, but programs still open in the same amount of
time.

I've had no problems after SP1 that I didn't have before, and I can't
remember any problems before.

Nope, no slow down in boot time or starting programs after SP1. Looks/feels
the same as before ...
Windows Performance Index is also the same as before SP1: 7,4 score.

SP installs typically flush out the program usage database (or whatever
the fany name is). That is used by Windows to learn how programs load
and optimizes how they load. In some cases, it may take a few reboots
and a few days to relearn everything.

No difference at all.

Running a couple of win7 boxes. One upper end home built box with a 7.6
score remains the same. However the other is a HP iq804 touchsmart (4.2
score) that was originally a vista box is slightly slower but not by much
and only on boot. Both machines took sp1 with no problems at all. Approx 30
mins to do each.

My HTPC is a 4.2 score and also takes noticeably longer on boot after SP1
was installed. But it's only been rebooted twice.

Thanks for all the replies. It looks like most don't experience a
problem, but a few might.

FWIW, I had to do a system restore after screwing up using Autoruns to
try to eliminate unnecessary progs starting automatically at boot. That
was to a system just prior to downloading and installing SP1. The
laptop definitely boots faster without SP1 - about 1.25 mins vs 2 mins.
The program start time seems back to normal, too.

Only problem now is that it won't install SP1 after the system restore!
I think I have the original SP1 download (about 150Mb?) on an image
backup, so might try running that. If all else fails, I'll restore to
the image I created just before installing SP1, as that included the SP1
download which installed without problem other than the slow boot.

Mine seems to take longer to boot -- but I hardly ever reboot it.

After installing SP1 on my desktop and one of our laptops, everything is
fine, but on my wife's net top computer, it has really slowed. Her net top
is even running a 64 bit version which I thought these things couldn't do.
But there it is.

That's interesting. Although on my wife's net top, it hasn't sped up any
even after a full weeks worth of use, loading the same programs.

You can't always get the info you need about Intel processors from the
Intel site. But the cpu-world.com site will give details on 32 bit or
64 bit support on new processors. I check here, when Intel won't tell me.
For example, this new Atom, is 64 bit.

Please fix your quoting style. When you use that idiosyncratic
technique, and someone else follows up on it, it looks like you said
what you actually only quoted.

I'm aware that the recent updates to Windows Live Mail broke your
quoting style. Unfortunately that poses a painful choice to you:
either fix every quote manually, or get a real newsreader such as
Gravity or Forte Agent (to mention the two that come to mind at the
moment).

Thanks for your consideration!
