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 onMicrosoft (NSDQ: MSFT)’s Vista team blog.

“Bikkja” said that “after installing SP1 things seem to go really slow, even though my computer shouldn’t have any problems.”
