Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) promises serious security fixes, and it's almost here. But you may not want to jump on it too fast. We'll tell you why.

Every time a virus or a worm makes the rounds, users throw their hands in the air. And by now, their arms must be exhausted. Seemingly every week, holes in Internet Explorer and Windows itself let new attacks through. And with each new attack, we see Microsoft release a patch instead of the service pack we've all been clamouring for.

Well, the wait for a long-promised security fix might finally be over. SP2 is expected to be released (and made available for download) very soon, and Microsoft will roll the service pack out to its Windows Update service later in the month. Boxed retail versions of Windows XP with SP2 are expected to hit store shelves by the end of October.
