Being somewhat suspicious of MS updates, having experienced problems already, I did some investigation work around the web and magazines before buying one with a cover mounted CD containing SP2. Weird eh. Microsoft left a bad taste in my mouth. Just installed a brand new copy of XP Pro, I'd go to friends pages on Myspace and freeze.

This is the way to handle any problems with the Microsoft update site.
I had some problems with the free ZA 6.5 version, so reverted to 6.1. Well it turned out to be the hard drive. Economics of an upgrade From a pure economics perspective, sticking with Windows XP would almost seem like a no-brainer. I am very satisfied with SP 2.
Microsoft acknowledges this. After that their performance became irratic. But it is necessary to include all criterias into the catalog for giving a relevant opinion if XP SP 2 is to recommend or not, such as design, performance, color, speed, Does it happen, say, with IE, but not Firefox (or vice versa)?
SP2 came in an automatic update the first time, my DVD drives and software suddenly didn't work anymore, I had to reload the old OS SP1. These processes will replace any corrupt files that may be to blame for your troubles. I too have the same problems. While this method adds a layer of administrative overhead to software deployments, it is an effective way to stick with Windows XP while continuing to enjoy the benefits of new software.
The common problem with computer guys, we always think its something difficult and deep within the system. After all of this (nearly a day w/ all the scans done), it was finally clean.

They said Windows XP is not enable to start up and the screen appear the F8 modeSafe Start upPrevious Start up.............What so ever you chosen, Windows will not work at all.I Hundreds of thousands if not millions of people have installed SP2 without a problem. Hollar Jody A. his comment is here Windows XP beats any form of Linux for usability out there.
There's probably not much I can say here that hasn't been said elsewhere. I can't find it, sp2, anywhere on my computer, only in updates and that says cancelled. Luckily for me, I have a Mac (this has never happened to me with a Mac OS upgrade) and could go on to Microsoft's website on it to find out what

I have had the ignomy to have my hard disk crash, probably due to bug infestation even after installing SP2, and using it's firewall (well, I was an uninformed internet user
All of a sudden when nothing seems to be running I hear and see my hard drive red light flickering, then after a few minutes, it stops. This *was* the right thing to do, but now I'm not so sure.
