XP sp2 still has holes

it fixes a few, and the changes to IE are worth the upgrade [particularly on computers of people who aren’t computer experts]

that said, I don’t use IE unless I have to anway

none of the systems I have installed service pack 2 on have had any problems, but supposedly some software conflicts with it.

closest thing to a problem I had was that the “security center” did not notice norton antivirus corporate edition as a antivirus software, so it would complain about not having antivirus software [a new feature in service pack 2]. You can easily configure it not to complain, and I that is what I did.

NOOOO NEVER DOWNLOAD THE DEVIL ONTO YOUR COMPUTER!!! NEVER!!! bad sp2 freaking screwed for my computer for so long and it took so long to fix because it froze every 2 minutes!!! WTF IS THAT???

SP2 is the cause of a slow problem, right?

I’m considering putting it on because it fixes a problem with my router that causes me to lose connection to the internet from about 8 pm to 6 am off and on. Unless I hear some reputable thourough evidence it’s going to rape my computer, I’m going to put it on. My virus scanner has been screwed up already anyway.

if you have more than 1Gb free when you install it you ought to be able to uninstall it rather easily

I don’t believe it will mess anything up on an otherwise working system

What is SP2?

You just love asking dumb questions don’t you? Service pack 2, google it.

Normally I’d disagree with you VK, so why change things now? :stuck_out_tongue: Mr_Rob is right. It was a dumb question. It’s actually easier to type sp2 into google than to write that question. Jedi Dawn has posed a few such questions:

What is Vray?
What are the suzzane awards?
How did you get the box to fling when it jumped off? And what is Icarus?
What are ngons?
What is SSS?
What is Mental ray?

And probably more but if you believe she’s 10 like she says, then I don’t think we can consider her thick as a brick. Actually, are you a girl, Jedi? I was wondering because dawn could mean early morning - y’know like woke up at the crack of dawn. If you are 10, I think it’s great that you are so young and your already into forum posting and stuff. But try to use google for stuff you don’t understand first - you’ll find you often get answers much quicker.

That’s one weird problem. Is it dial-up? If so, maybe your girlfriend (or boyfriend, possibly mother) is trying to use chat-lines 'cos you’re on Elysiun too much and not satisying his/her needs.

I’m kidding of course. I still don’t see how SP2 would fix the problem though. I would reckon there would be a better solution like just a specific update to fix that problem. It’s true you can’t always believe what you hear but a few people have had serious problems with SP2. I wouldn’t take that risk. Ok, I have os x so I don’t have to but if I used Windows, I still wouldn’t.

LOL osx nice, I’m actually not on elysiun that much. I just stop by ever so often to see how things are going and I let email notification keep me up to date after that. I have only about 2 posts a day.

The router’s company (LinkSys, curse their name to hell) said that the SP2 has a hotfix that solves the problem. Who knows.

Had a little freudian slip there osxrules? :stuck_out_tongue:

Hahaha, nope - I would have said “possibly theeth’s mother” if that was the case ;).
