This is what you should to to prepare for SP2
You have to be completely prepared for SP2 which means. Spyware free, Adware free, virus free BEFORE you install SP2, Also go to this link from Microsoft which also has links inside of it that will tell you what to do to prepare, including programs that are known to have problems which you may have to patch BEFORE you install SP2. Also go to your computer manufacturer's web site to see if any programs that came with your computer (non Microsoft programs) that need some sort of a patch BEFORE you install SP2. After all of the above, you should have no problems. Here is the Microsoft link. Hope this helps.
Hi and thanks for any any help/advice that may be offered.
I am new to this forum so please bear with me until I become more familiar with it.
I know this may have been discussed many times but I just wondered what do people think of sp2?
For my part I'm still not entirely convinced that it's ok.
