If the SP2 has already been downloaded and since I am not as well versed in solving potential problems should I run into any, how can I remove the download completely until a later time? (I'd feel better since I've seen several posts where the user has run into problems and has had to uninstall). Thank you!

If necessary, you can use the System Restore feature of Windows XP. To start it, clck on Start-All Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore. When the SR program window loads, choose "Restore my computer to an earlier time", then choose a date prior to the installation of the Service Pack.

Hope this helps.
