Then.. I hard reset a further time and the cross hairs moved slowly but not as slow as 1st time - so I did it a few more times with seemingly random results each time but each time the speed the machine ran correlated directly with the speed the cross hairs moved during the alignment process - so I hard reset a few times until I got a good one and stuck with it - now feels quick throughout - e.g. start > programs> scroll down - no delay - whereas before the upgrade and before the messing around above there was always a couple of seconds of delay.
Any ideas? Am I losing it?
