Hmmmm.... Glen30 and myself ordered online the 1st day allowed (August 25) other than a brief several hour allowance to order maybe weeks ago before August 25. Glen receive his August 31, and I received mine Sep 1.

I believe you live in Canada, but it shouldn't take that long in my estimation.

Regards,

JR

mine ships from Microsoft Corporate who are located in Ontario, Canada, whereas I am on the West Coast in Vancouver.

Mail from any point east of the Rockies seems to take at least 4 days, so maybe 2 weeks was/ is out of line?

glad I have it but will hold off install till I read a little more about it.

of particular interest to me is the SP_2 firewall which is believed to interact poorly with other firewalls.

so to all who have installed it in conjunction with your own software firewall, would like it if your input on this one point can be posted.

Perhaps the mods can start a thread dealing strictly wiht the way SP_2 interacts with other popular software.

thanks all.

RE: "...of particular interest to me is the SP_2 firewall which is believed to interact poorly with other firewalls."

MS or as I recall it is on the CD, recommends to choose their firewall or another, not to run both. As I also recall the CD automatically disabled the MS firewall and honored my Zone Alarm. In any event you need to check to see if it is disabled if your are going to use another firewall.

Please visit the WinXP forum. There is ample info there. Also a survey was made by the forums Administration on what you similar propose:
