Default If you have Windows XP, did the upgrade to SP2 work for you?

The latest service pack for Microsoft's Windows XP operating system does a little more then just patch some security holes; With its build-in firewall & other restrictive settings it can cause quite a lot of problems.

I can not get in installed on my A64 box without experiencing one blue screen after the other.

Did SP2 work for you? Or have you not tried it yet?

It works just fine for me on my P4 system. Haven't had any problem with it.

Didn't give it a try yet.

A friend of mine followed up on the beta SP2's and was very pleased with it so I wanted to get it too when it got out but when it finally did, reports of numerous problems, bugs and security holes kept me from installing it provided my cd key is accepted

I don't want to try it

Probably my pc goes kaboom after installing it

I don't trust windows updates since my fathers computer did a spontanious format after a windows update.

Works with AXP pretty good.
Sandra slows to boot afterward only on P4, strange.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Zone Alarm
Norton System Works
Office XP
Auto Cad
Invector 5
Photoshop 7
Roxio
Garmin GPS

A Okay with the above. Installed in 2 AXP and 2 P4; remaing 3 systems will wait as stand-by if anything goes wrong.

installed it on a Virtual Machine, first time it crashed due to hd space problems (4 GB partition, with Win XP SP1, Norton Antivir 2004 and ZoneAlarm).

After a retry the Virtual Machine became very slow, Norton and ZoneAlarm don't load anymore.

I going to wait some time before installing it on my systems.

WinXP SP2 causes the scanning software, of the "Agfa Snapscan e52" USB scanner, to generate a hidden error message.
You're stuck from there.
