Service Pack 2

by Muzza / September 16, 2004 7:46 PM PDT

I have put SP2 on to various Pent 2,3,&4s.and have found the service pack makes the computers run faster, BUT on 2 of the computers (Pent 2 and 4) there was a problem with other devices. One the printer wouldn't comunicate with the computer and the other drivers were being dropped.
In both cases the SP2 was removed but it also took a windows system 32 file drv with it which made the whole computer go down. I beleive MS is unindated here in Australia with this problem

Re: Service Pack 2/I went from Warp 5 to Warp 8

My six week old lightspeed XPS machine was operating at about Warp 5 when I went into the XP Pro SP1 side of the MS-Wormhole; but 40 minutes later when I came out at the SP2 end, it was operating at about Warp 8.

There was a noticably "snapper" response speed after installation of SP2. I have experienced No Problemos, thus far.
