When I checked Windows Update it said 4 hours, 22 minutes to download on my dial-up. The time depends on how much your computer already contains in relation to what they are going to download. So 10 hours could be a possibility. You must really need this SP2.
I strongly suggest you get the CD and install from it. With the CD I believe it took Glenn about a hour to install and me only 42 minutes on our dial-up.
Recently I checked the computer of a relative who is a school teacher that lives 175 away. He doesn't have much time and actually taught a computer class. His home WinXP had absolutely no XP updates and his Nortons Anti-Virus had expired. I installed the free AVG, Ad-Aware, and SpyBot. Mailed him a MS CD to update all the patches etc to SP1. I now need to tell him to go and get the CD from MS or I can mail him a copy. Can't email as they don't read any email.
Havent installed SP2 yet..Checked it out today by manually using Windows Updates..It says SP2 size is 75 MB and will take 10 hrs. and 44 minutes?? Could this be correct?? Use Dialup Connection.
