How do I handle sp2

I downloaded sp2. I have not installed it. I don't plan to after Cnet said not to for a while. My question is if I download any other update from Windows update site will the sp2 I all ready have install when I install them? If so how do I stop sp2 from installing at this time?

If you have the full 270+ meg file, you can install SP2 on your terms. If you set your PC for automatic updates as suggested by MS, you will install SP2 on their terms. There is a blocker (sorry, no link) that will allow you to have automatic updates except SP2. As for myself, I have installed the product on several machines without any incidents so far but. I made images of drives first in case I wanted to back out of it but have not needed to.
