Windows Vista SP1 wreaks havoc on some PCs, users complain

Slashdot It! A day after it was released for public download, Windows Vista SP1 is drawing barbs from some computer users who say the software wrecked their systems.. "I downloaded it via Windows Update, and got a bluescreen on the third part of the update," wrote "Iggy33" in a comment posted Wednesday on Microsoft's Vista team blog. Iggy33 was just one of dozens of posters complaining about Vista Service Pack 1's effect on their PCs. "What a disaster," wrote "SeppDietrich" of the update. "It exiled all my Nvidia drivers to the Bermuda Triangle." "Bikkja" said that "after installing SP1 things seem to go really slow, even though my computer shouldn't have any problems." Other troubles reported by Vista SP1 users ranged from a simple inability to download the software from Microsoft's Windows Update site to sudden spikes in memory usage. "Went from using 650 MB RAM idle to 1 Gig... I'll be switching back," said "Kurrier."
