Perhaps you have a worm which is tying up all your connections?
I am running XP SP2 pro and have seen a dramatic slow down after this
I think this is because I am a network admin, and I run a lot of
software. I have VMWare workstation running. I have my webfilter
interface up, my firewall interfaces, my e-mail, Access Database over
a network, Console-One, etc with views over multiple monitors.
I have a batch file which does a "net use" to 250 machines on a WAN
connected network so I can admin them (we just bought the place,
haven't merged forests yet.) This was taking 15 minutes to run.
After the patch it takes 1 hour and the machine is locked during that
hour -- that's running them all at the same time. If I run the net
use in sync, it takes 8 hours to complete but the machine's usable.
I think XP/Vista just are not made for Administrator workstations.
The impact shouldn't be seen by most people, except perhaps p2p'ers.
