Same incident occurring here also on XP Home SP2 with all current
Very lengthy slowdowns similar to booting slowdowns after March
In March it was 944533 / 943055 / 946026 / 890830
I side stepped the issue temporarily by manually installing updates
linked to Microsoft at
Softwarepatch.com - this month that trick does not work
In April I've tried manually installing 890830 followed by 947864
result = slow after reboot
As 947864 rewrites the registry and needs a reboot,
I also tried unchecking 947864 and installing via Windows Update the
948881 / 941693 / 945553 / 948590 / 890830 result = slow after reboot.
I am not seeing unusual HDD activity or high CPU utilization by a
just glacially slow rebooting for 30-40 minutes followed by near
normal system behavior.
I am reverting to a complete local c: restore from a TerabyteUnlimited
BootIt N.G. backup.
If every month Microsoft can kill a few more XP (or W2k) systems
through update attrition,
then eventually we all can be herded into Vista.....
