Just a warning though if you have a Illegal version of XP which has not been activated after you install the SP2 it asks you to Activate it and if you don't it just locks you out of Windows !!!

WinBlows.... always on the ball I see...... Personally, I don't see if you really need SP2, as long as you are on top of XP.... if you are... then it really has no advantages, just Bill Gates trying to get out of alot of Law Suits.

Heh, SP2 is going to be installed in many PCs due to lot of bug fixes, i hope that M$ only corrected and not create a ton of new problems, as usual

This is an other disadvantage of the Windows monopoly. All hackers, crackers and other scum of the earth are focused on Windows exclusively. So no matter how many service packs are released, Microsoft's struggle to bring forth an impervious operating system will never end.

Latest studies indicate, though, that Linux and other unix variants contsin even more open doors...
