Windows 7: Post-SP1 slowdowns

Post-SP1 slowdowns

For whatever reason, after dozens of restarts, SP1 takes about 8 more seconds to bootup. Every time. After the boot logo goes away, it usually takes a second or two to go to my login screen. It stays at a black screen for about 5-8 seconds. No HDD activity light or anything. This did NOT happen pre-SP1.

Did anyone else notice any sort of slowdowns? This is very disappointing.

I am just downloading SP1 - takes forever. I'll check the boot time after it is installed.

My boot times increased by 8 seconds also with SP 1---from 70 to 78 seconds.

I don't much care about it.

My restart time went from 51 sec to 99 sec - not a good deal. If that does not get better, I will uninstall the bugger.

But I also noticed that the net runtime optimization service is keeping my CPU busy - 15% of the i7. I wonder what that is doing.

That's funny, my boot times are faster, especially on my HTPC.

I know that 8 seconds doesn't sound like much, but I'm just so darn used to it with my SSD. Very annoying and disappointing to see it take longer. Hopefully they'll get it sorted out soon...

After this runtime optimization was done, I rebooted again and it is down to 55sec - still 4 sec slower than before, but at least not too bad. Will measure it again tomorrow.

Mine are about the same but they weren't fantastic anyway. I also noticed the .net optimization service taking 25% of the cpu. It lasted for about 15 minutes and is now back to normal.

One interesting observation. It deleted all the restore points prior to SP1. They obviously don't want you to uninstall it using system recovery.
