I know there is already a butt load of topics like this one but when i updated to SP2 my computer slowed down a lot. I have a VIA chipset and people have told me to reinstall the VIA drivers for the CPU but that didnt work either. Does anyone know what i can do to have SP2 and not a slow computer.

Which board? How much of a slow down and when do you notice it? As sp2 does "do more" so there is often a slow down but usually not enough for people to notice. How many / what processes do you have running?

I haven't updated my via chip set drivers for a while (as those systems have been stable for months) but it used to be for sp2 you used the microsoft agp driver instead of the ones in the via set.

Any other updates? A month or so ago, windows upgraded my marvel lan driver which also produced a slowdown.

When you updated to sp2, has your computer been in use for a while before the update? It may be time for a clean install.
