    Vista startup is slow after updates

    Vista startup is slow after updates there were recently downloaded and installed. I don't know what the problem excatly is, After reaching to the desktop the mouse and keyboard freezes for sometime and then network connection keeps dropping. I get the message network cable unplugged more often. Can anyone help?

    Re: Vista startup is slow after updates

    Did you create a restore point before updating the system. Windows Vista is very buggy and there is not much you can do about it, I would recommend you to uninstall the updates that you installed. Are you sure its the updates that slowed the system? did you install any new hardware or software? I think you should have a look at that too. Do post back...

    Re: Vista startup is slow after updates

    Thanks for taking some time to reply. I am damn sure its the updates that screwed the system. I had not updated my computer since a long time and had no problem with it. But now after the updates i feel like throwing this computer out of the window. Well I updates Vista as i had some virus infection and i frequently use to get alert messages that windows updates are available, update your system to get better protection. Please help...

    Check that the updates that you installed didn't screw any drivers. You will need to check this from device manager. Open device manager and see if any driver has a yellow icon. If you have yellow icons on them, you will need to install the drivers again, it is likely that the current drivers may not work, so check if there are any updates for your drivers...

    I would recommend you to try this :
    • Insert the Vista CD in the rom and boot from it
    • Select the repair option and let it repair Vista
    • After Repair see if windows vista is working normaly or not
    • Check if all drivers are proper
    • Check all softwares are working properly

    If this doesn't help you, then you have a serious virus problem. I think you should buy a genuine antivirus software and clean install windows vista.
