Depends on how much it's added to your boot up time. Mine as gone from 29 to 34 seconds which is not a long time but quite a big percentage considering.

I think it has something to do with the loading of the firewall and antivirus settings, SP2 is, [I think], loading these settings during the boot up rather than waiting until you reach a working desktop then loading them.

well, i used to be able to get on in 15 secons. This increasedf dramatoically with Norton Internet Security which I expected. It reached about 28 seconds. It now takes about fifteen seconds to load the startup screen, and a further 10-12 seconds to login. I have noticed this only happens to the first user to login though.
