w2k Pro running great
then upload (~8) latest microsoft security updates patches etc , install
succesfully, reboot ...

now w2k is loading applications noticeably (2-3 times) slower (so 5 seconds
becomes 10-15 seconds) , IE6 launches slower then loads home page slower,
OE6 seems to launch slower and takes much longer to check messages (eg. took
25 seconds to announce to check and announce arrival of one piece of (1K)
junk mail )


so any quick fixes ?
if not then any tips on tracking down what is causing the slow down such as
tracking/tracing what (Service/DLL/ etc) is now running 3 times slower ?

TIA

We are experiencing this after completing a fresh install and then all the
posted patches from MS. All of our new PC's (Intel 2.8Ghz with the Intel
D865GLCL MB and a 40GB WD HDD w/ 512MB RAM PC3200 @ ) have the same problem,
regardless if we us a Ghost image or do a fresh install. All we run on them
is 2000 SP4, IE 6.0, Office XP SP3. We're in the middle of a 20+ PC rollout
and we're dead in the water becuase these things are running slower than the
PIII 450Mhz they're replacing!!!
