    SP1 is a very big update. Temporary files must have been left after the installation. Clean your computer and then defrag:

    You may have installed the Service Pack 1 for Windows 7, this release is known to have plenty of bugs and errors after downloading. Myself, have downloaded it and all input and output eg Printer, Camera and Sound all completly stopped working.

    How to solve this problem:

    There are two ways, on Windows 7 to solve this, go to the start menu >> and type in "System Restore" and click the program and choose a date to restore it (before the update)

    If you believe it is just one update that is casuing the problem, go to Control Panel >> Programes and Features >> and on the left navigation panel choose "View Installed Updates". From there, you can choose the update and uninstall it just like a program

    Good Luck.

    It is better to have a fresh install, rather than installing it from windows updates. Backup your important data, then reformat whole system. Coz your system config is quite good, windows 7 should boot really fast. I have the same config. and I don't face any such problems.
