I agree, SP2 has caused me more headaches than SP1a. Just last week i was
getting errors, unexpected shut downs, and a couple of blue-screens-of-death.
An Error Report told me to install SP2.... Good Grief!!!!

My new Fujitsu notebook came with XPSP2 installed. Whenever I installed
Panda Internet Security I started getting reboots, which became BSODs
when I turned off reboot. I tried an earlier version which didn't reboot
the system but instead I kept getting 'Generic Host Process for Win32
Services'.
As soon as I removed Panda everything was fine again, except that my
System tray and Taskbar keeps adding/losing icons.
SP2? I can't get rid of it.

:rolleyes: I can just see meemaw looking through this at the library;
'List of fixes included in Windows XP Service Pack 2'
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811113)
Because her computer at home was on dial-up, with AOL, and a Celeron,
and a computer that won't get past the boot screen. All because she had
AU enabled. And trusted Microsoft!
The masses are asses,
