After installation XP SP3 local file acces is very slow

Monday 01.09.2008 is installed SP3 on my Notebook. The local File Access is
now very slow.

Example:
- in the Windows Explorer i highlight the file, right mouse button, want to
see the file property, have to wait 3-4 Seconds till the Popup Menu shows up
- in the Windows Explorer i highlight the file, a 10 kb file, press CTRL+C
for Copy paste and have to wait wait 3-4 Seconds
- doubleclick on a Word Dokument 2-3Mb and i have to wait
- Opening Eventlog locally and i have to wait till it shows up

last night i run the Defragmentation Tool, but the file access is still very
slow.

On Friday 29.08 (XP SP2) the Notebook had no problem, fast file access on
the Notebook.

Here the Notebook specs
DELL M 65
2 Gb Ram, free Ram 1.3 Gb
100 Gb Harddrive, free space 30 Gb

Any advice is very appreciated

Regards
Paolo

Re: After installation XP SP3 local file acces is very slow

notebooks are unique
machines and some
makers are not advising
to install sp3.

you might to uninstall it
and return to a functional
state.

or you might want to ask
the tech's at the homesite
for your machine for advice.

Re: After installation XP SP3 local file acces is very slow

Hi db

thanks for answer. But there must be a reason why the local Disk Access is
slow after the Installation of SP3. The Access on Network Drives is not
affected. It's as fast as it was before the installation of SP3.

Any other ideas ?

Re: After installation XP SP3 local file acces is very slow

well, the maker for my
notebook advised me not
to install sp3 and in doing
so alleviated time and
aggravation with resolving
a dysfunctional machine.

i can provide a couple of
suggestions:

1) there was a posting on
a similar issue and the user
eventually resolved a problem
by reinstalling a proprietary
file.

so perhaps, you simply have
to reinstall some of your files
from the notebooks' homesite.

2) you may refer this headache
to the sp3 team:

Re: After installation XP SP3 local file acces is very slow

checked the Homepage of Dell and i did not find an advise that this Notebook
is not compatible with SP3.
your link to refer to the Sp3 Team is a good idea, i will do this.

Re: After installation XP SP3 local file acces is very slow

yesterday i used processmonitor (sysinternals) to take a look if there is a
process that delay's the access on the local disk. so i find out that
rtvscan (Norton Antivirus) was activated every 2 seconds, creating a log
file, did something approx. 1-2 seconds and closed the log file. This
procedure was continuous.
So i decided to run a full scan over night on the local Harddisk with the
Norton Antivirus.

And this solved the problem. Now the access on the local disk drive is as
fast as it was before the installation of the SP3.

So problem is solved.

Thank you for help db
