updated my vista HP today with SP1 - aahh! User account not too badly affected but unable to access internet. other accounts just disaster everything from waiting cursor not blinking to unable to access programmes and ghoting when i try.And tray icons missing, I am currnetly on a trusty Pentium 3 running DS linux. Guess its a compltete format and reinstall but would be gratefiull of any commentss.Do I go for sp1 on rerun and what went wrong? Tks aand sorry for poor spelling screen is rather small! Am running kaspersky 7 av if that affected anything?
have moved this from general helproom sorry about that

Were you offered SP1 as an update or did you download it from the Microsoft Website? Perhaps you had some drivers that were not Vista compatible. Did you read this before installing SP1 click here
