    Can't verify it (no time) but SP2 was supposed to confound the BHOs we all suspect and love. It will be interesting if for the next twelve months we see a little improvement in sales starting from this weekend. And it'll be even nicer if we see a LOT of improvement!

    Of course, I'm assuming a large percentage of XP installations in those Wal-mart boxes bought over the past several years.

    I'm also assuming it will take many months before SP2 gets installed in most of them.

    Has anyone installed Windows XP sp2 and had any problems, or has it all gone OK.

    My PC has downloaded it, but I haven't installed it yet.

    Having seen the list of programs which can give problems plus the fact I run SQL Server on my PC and connect to my server using Enterprise Manager and Terminal Services Client (networking is one of the big areas of change as I understand it), I'm loath to let the update loose until I know what/if problems I might get.

    No problems so far, except virtual memory settings were changed. Not tough to change them back, just trying to remember my previous settings!

    I still made sure I had a complete backup on tape ready before I made the switch.

    SSShush Dirk and let the networks and the 3rd party AM firms counting on BHO theftware sales, find out what happened to their e-mail spam list brokers, telemarketing info peddlers faced when the abused consumers. Bill Gates is mad and so are voters pressuring the FTC to push the Gorrilla marketing Adwhores back into their sewers.
