I just installed Solidworks 2009 sp2.1 on a users computer and there computer is now running much slower. They are a remote user so i it hard to tell how slow it is reacting through remote desktop. The CPU and memory do are not being maxed out and the network connection does not have high usage.

I belive they are using a hp xw6400 with a NV fx3500 but need to confirm this. They my also be using a Dell Precision 490 with a FX4500.

I also have another local user that upgraded to sp2.1 had is having simulator issues. I looks like most of the issues are appearing when Solidworks is running. The problem i saw was when they where previewing a jpg in the windows image and fax view and it froze. CPU and memory were OK. They are using a hp xw6400 with a NV fx3500. They where not having these issues before sp2.1.

Any suggestions on what maybe causing this? I have a feeling it is something to do with the SP and/or the video card drives.
