Windows XP Service Pack = Working Great !!!!

I finally get the SP2 downlaoded on my cheesy dial up connection (after leaving the computer on all night) and I'l happy to report that it is working great.

It has a Nice Pop Up Blocker and a Security Center.

I was a little scared of this upgrade but it works like a charm without any problems, so far !!

I am happy with my SP2 too, but my windows drive swelled by about 650 MB after the updating! Has anyone find a safe and easy way to delete those redundent files which SP2 has backup during the updating process and is now hidding in this folder: \windows\$NtServicePackUninstall$....

Try this if you want.

If and only if your machine is doing well, disable System Restore and then re-enable it.

Best of luck,
