    The first time I booted after SP1 it took about 40 seconds longer than usual, then after that I was getting normal start up times.

    I have the same problem. I found out that after i installed sp1 xp is using memory like hell! I have 512 mb ram and that should be enough but after a couple of hours I only have about 45mb free! this is boring because I have to free memory all the time

    I was a little fast there. I have reinstalled everything and it seems like it wasn't the sp1 that ate my memory , but dc or the tweakoption in tweakxp... sorry about that

    Well, that is quite normal...the second people get problems after installing a Service Pack...they love to blame any problems on the service pack itself, especially in the case of Microsoft. I do it sometimes but I would recommend looking further into problems before crying wolf. :)

    I don't know, there seems to be A LOT of threads with people posting various problems occuring after the sp1 install. I doubt they are all coincidental. I am waiting...

    Sp1 is fine on mine anyways

    sure there are things that happen but most seem related to tweaks done like services that were disabled or boot screens that were changed other than that I have not seen any real trouble related to sp1
