Updating your System Slows your machine?

Hi, Dont know if anyone else has experienced this, but I have on all occasions on 2xMachines: after a fresh install, all drivers in etc, I do a full windows update, only leaving out things like windows movie maker and messanger and any other unecessary stuff etc, my machines alway run like sh!t afterwords, slow, explorer windows taking an age to close and more....doe anyone else get this or know which updates kill the machine?

  1. Personally, I haven't had any problems. But I have heard from some people that 811493 slows your computer, and 329170 causes it to take forever to shut down. I have never had any problems with either one, on several different computers. Maybe I've just been lucky. :smile:

    My Daddy used to tell me:
    <b>It's better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you're stupid,
    then it is to open your mouth and prove it.</b>
    I never was good at taking advice!
  2. Unfourtunately, this is old news. And Microsoft knows about it. According to Microsoft: May or may not be you problem.

  3. Thank you very much for that!

    Give a lazy man an easy job and he'll find an easier way of doing it.
