I installed ThinkVantage System Update 3 software on both my T42 and R52, and now the boot time is very excessive on both systems. When XP Pro gets to the "Welcome" screen and the Windows music plays, it now takes from 18 to 20 seconds to get to the desktop. Previously, the "Welcome" screen was only present for around 2 seconds prior to getting to the desktop.
Is this a peculiarity of this program? I used the program to download and install several critical and recommended updates for both the T42 and R52, but this behavior occurred after I installed the ThinkVantage System Update software, and not after the installation of the updates downloaded by the System Update software.
Any thougts on this would certainly be appreciated.
