eh guys
i think you are not informed well
sp2 is not yet released.. microsoft NEVER released the FINAL sp2
the sp2 that u prolly have its a rc ( rc stands for "release candidate")
we will never know how sp2 buggy is or wtv, until microsoft releases the FINAL
the final version will be the one only from microsofts website www.microsoft.com or maybe http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.co...r/default.aspx
i hope i ve been helpful

my sp2 was downloaded from microsoft's download site via automatic update on my test computer. I do not think this is a "release candidate" version because I was never informed that I was installing a beta version, so to speak, of sp2.

Good point kickassclone, I would think companys like Norton and Divx wouldn't expell the resources to suport a Beta.
Take a peek, best I could find so some can actually DL it! I wouldn't if I was you!

Well i just bought a brand new windows xp home disk from best buys when i got home i turned on automatic updates as i always do and sure enough it downloaded sp2 and this is the full version it was over a 100 mb so if its not the full version then why is microsoft allow it to be downloaded from automatic updates?

because the parts ur pc downloaded, were the finished parts of sp2
the full packet its not done tho
the delayed its release because a guy found 2 different ways to hack it
microsoft staff was like ***, so they decided to remake it and delay its release

lemme give some reasons to update from sp1 to sp2:

Top 10 Reasons to Install Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)

1.Help protect your PC from harmful attachments.
By alerting you to potentially unsafe attachments, SP2 helps guard your computer from viruses that can spread through Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, and Windows Messenger.

2.Improve your privacy when you’re on the Web.
SP2 helps protect your private information by applying the security settings that guard your PC to the files and content downloaded using Internet Explorer.

3.Avoid potentially unsafe downloads.
Internet Explorer download monitoring and the Internet Explorer Information Bar warn you about potentially harmful downloads and give you the option to block files that could be malicious.

4.Reduce annoying pop-ups.
Internet Explorer Pop-Up Blocker makes browsing the Internet more enjoyable by helping you reduce the unwanted ads and content that pop up when you’re browsing the Web.

5.Get firewall protection from startup to shutdown.
The powerful, built-in Windows Firewall is now turned on by default. This helps protect Windows XP against viruses and worms that can spread over the Internet.

6.Take control of your security settings.
The new Windows Security Center allows you to easily view your security status and manage key security settings in one convenient place.

7.Get the latest updates easily.
Enhancements to Windows XP’s Automatic Updates feature make it even easier to access Windows updates. Plus, new technology has been added to help dial-up customers download updates more efficiently.

8.Help protect your e-mail address.
Improvements to Outlook Express help reduce unwanted e-mail by limiting the possibility of your e-mail address being validated by potential spammers.

9.Take action against crashes caused by browser add-ons.
The new Add-On Manager in Internet Explorer lets you easily view and control add-ons to reduce the potential for crashes and enjoy a more trouble-free browsing experience.

10.Go wireless without the hassle.
SP2 improves wireless support and simplifies the process of discovering and connecting to wireless networks in your home or on the road.

basicly, most of the improvments have to do with a network....too bad http://news.com.com/Drag-and-drop+fl...l?tag=nefd.top

do your research

Microsoft said the issue did not pose a serious risk to users because it requires an attacker to trick people into visiting a Web site and taking some action at the site.
and how is this differ than how most viruses infect? lol

GG microsoft
