Did my first Vista backup yesteday. 6 hours to back up 90gb of data - and the hard drive was thrashed throughout, making the PC virtually unusable. I used to use a dos batch file, and it sure didn't take 6 hours.
Disable real-time anti-virus - that will probably help considerably
I disabled Defender altogether - if that's what you mean - I'm using PCTools instead.
Either way, it's a pretty poor state of affairs if your OS doesn't have the ability to run realtime AV software without it rendering your PC useless.
