XP Updates

Recently I updated XP Media SP2 with all the latest updates except service pack 3 updates

Since the updates my PC has been running a little sluggish.

Are there any known updates which have been highlighted as causing issues?.

Also,if I updated to SP3 ,would this address any problems with the previous updates.

I have turned off the new indexing service which was part of the new search service,this was causing a slow down.

Yes, I believe you would be better off with SP3.

if you are running a duel core processor or above sp3 will benefit you in terms of compatibility plus the bug fixes that come with it
