read in a recent mag that if after updating xp pro machine runs noticeably slower it could be due to patch 811493 sp2 apparently it is notorious for it, sorry if already posted and the wiser elders are already aware.

Yep! Your correct, the original release of this Hotfix did cause many problems for some users, but it was withdrawn and replaced with a new version, approximately may of this year [I think], [Same number] and so far it seems to be OK.

But in saying that, it still causes problems for users of AOL and the AOL help team recommend removing the hotfix to cure the freezing on exit of their browser. j.
