First of all, Welcome to the Apple Discussions Forums!
I know next to nothing of laptops (ie. Powerbooks) but I do know the importance of running Repair Permissions from Disk Utiltiy (In your Applications Folder>Utilities>Disk Utility) before and after updates (especially Security Updates). Was this performed and still the sluggishness after the update? If not try Repairing Permissions and see if any improvement.....

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I always repair permissions after updates. I have done it a couple of times just to see if it would help. No luck. Everything is identical to the state the computer was in with the exception of the update. Everything still works but is 10 times slower. This is also not a space issue. Something was changed during the update and I would love to know how to get back to where I was before the update. Thanks.

Just a guess, but I would guess it is a conflict with some third party software that you have installed.
I have updated with all the Security Updates and not had any change in slowdowns with the system whatsoever. So, it must be some conflict with your setup.
Sorry I can not advise what to do in that department but I think it would be worth looking into.
