Hehehe rite on jaqui :)

Lucky me i didn't upgrade to SP2 because of the initial warnings from every Tech forum and mailing list. I can give you an example at my company.

Some of the computers at my company suffered a virus attack that render the PC un-useable and must be re-install. So we installed with XP SP2. After finish everything seems al-rite but then our Anti-virus program gave out an error saying that XP SP2 doesn't recognize the anti-virus and that the user must install an anti-virus program.

It's like the current one doesn't even exists even though it works,but it's annoying when you see an error on the monitor.
So i stick with my XP SP1a with all the fixes and updates available. So far i'm happy.

You can get a pretty good idea of the impact of SP2 by clicking on this link from a Google search. http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGLD,GGLD:2004-17,GGLD:en&q=xp+sp2+problems Do some research on your own using search engines and SP2 as the search term, you will get more information than you need!
