I believe if you go into the control panel add/remove progs you can remove sp2, not 100% sure.. but I think it can be done. Why wouldnt you want sp2 tho?

Yeah if its embeded then I dont think there is a way because it replaces certain files on the installation CD.

Can you not borrow a copy off your friend that has a SP1 intergrated CD.

You can remove SP2 providing you installed it manually in the first place. If you have a later version of Windows XP, SP2 is pre-installed (like mine) and you can not take it off.

I don't see much difference in it. It was supposed to help fix a lot of IE security (wrong - all still vunerable). DEP does not work at all to be honest, viruses still run even the ones its supposed to stop. Firewall aint bad though but the wireless networking system is very good though (best thing)

Thats exactley why it sux :turd:... It doesn't do what it was supposed to. SP1 since having about 20 or so patches is now kind of ok and is much easier to handle when you use 3rd party tools to protect yourself. Much safer SP1.
