Hi all I'm new here.

I've been having problems after I've installed "Service Pack 2" for Windows Vista.

It's continually slow and lagging, and often times it doesn't respond- I did not have this problem before installing this update. and I would like information on how to fix this issue. I'm debating on downgrading to XP.

My computer is 6-7 years old and I had just wiped it about two weeks ago, due to my keyboard and mouse not working once Windows booted and I could not sign in- THIS PROBLEM WAS FIXED BY WIPING.

I have few programs on this because I have another laptop for everything else. I have Firefox (works fine), Advanced System Care 4 (works fine), and basic Windows programs. Skype (works fine), and a game called Iris Online (messing up continually, when it didn't before this update).

I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it, to no result. I tried System Restore, to no avail. My computer lags when bringing up programs and windows on the screen. Please, if anyone can tell me how I can fix this, it would be greatly appreciated. If you require any extra information, please ask.

Yes I know it's old, but it's on it's 7th wipe, and works fine otherwise.

My first suggestion...uninstall Advanced System Care, then run chkdsk /r and see if there is any improvement.
