The prob is, he might need to get rid of a malware before!

My only issue so far is Windows Search is very active, since the update, constant 2-10% Cpu usage, on both systems.

Otherwise, it seems anyone running Ad-Aware AV will need to close it before updating, especially if updating via Windows Update.

I haven't noticed any hits or gains since the SP went on. Besides any security fixes it will enabled support for new features not put to use at this time where you would likely notice them however. But I also run with 8gb of ram, a 1tb video card, and a relatively fast cpu on the 64bit Windows not expecting to see any large differences performance wise here.

Actually that's 1gb not 1tb of video memory. Sorry for the typo before. But when comparing that to some seen on old cases I've been refurbishing lately it does seem a lot like 1tb!
(They do have some 2gb cards out however if you want to spend and spend big.)

What is being looked at now however will be anything noticable good or bad since 7 has been running premo since an image made and later restored to the drive has been working well for nearly 6 months. The hardware analogy was simply noting that no big boost or performance hits are to be expected.

I knew that, Night Hawk, that's why I *winked*.

I agree with your assessment. There are no significant performance gains or losses in regard to SP1. I have noticed a bit of an uptick in start up time (very minor) after a few days of having installed it (at first, start up times were much longer than pre-SP1) and a .1 increase on two of my WEI scores. Nothing to write home about, indeed.

After installing SP1, I feel that my file explorer browsing in general, especially over the local network is much faster and snappier. Also it also seems to have sped up usb flash cards and sticks somewhat. At least this is my impression since yesterday.

Today after updating to avast 6.0 (from 5.1), the system seem even better.

I suspect you might notice a slight increase in startup time as expected since any service pack adds to the OS. Windows in that sense will then grow in size.

With 7 being a performer from the start however you won't expect to see any large performance hit while some may encounter some other interesting issues still to be seen.

(gee a 1tb video card? I wouldn't mind a look at one! )
