Hi has anyone notice a faster or slower system since installing sp1?
The only task that seems faster to me is file moving and copying other than that id say overall the system is slightly slower,windows mail takes about 3 seconds to open,previously it was near instant.

not got sp1 yet, new to vista but finding it a lot faster than xp, more than happy with its speed, [only deleting files / folders a little slow]

in some areas, but it's too slight to be of any real significance.

The file moving or copying from folder to folder or hd to hd seems a good 20% faster to me but thats the only speed increase ive seen

My boot times definitely better, now consistently around 2 min 40 sec from hitting power button to all applications loaded including sidebar and logged onto web etc. Was around 3 min 15 sec before.
Acer notebook, I installed Vista from express upgrade DVD over clean copy of X.P. over a year ago now , SP1 appeared in windows update a few weeks ago now.

My boot times are a lot better, 1 min 25 sec from power on to all applications and this includes the sidebar and logged on to the web. It was 2 min 35 sec before SP-1. I have an HP notebook and upgraded to SP-1 on the 23rd of April. J.B.

Further update having had SP1 installed for a couple of months.
Boot times are without doubt consistently quicker, in fact around 2 min 10sec sometimes now.
However, I suspect there is an increase in the old "Disc thrashing" again following initial boot. Has anyone suspected this.
Also IE7 has "stopped responding" more since SP1 . Were it not for IE7 my Vista reliability rating would be on 10. In two months this has happened 5 times.

2 minutes 10 seconds is an awfully long time to boot up !!!!! My XP sys boots up in around 30 seconds. And Vista used to boot in 40 seconds. What have you got installed on that box bud ?

Everything loaded up in taskbar etc takes around 1 minute 10.
