Be careful where you get it from.

From MS web site "The Microsoft Download Center site is your only authorized web source for downloading a licensed copy of Windows XP Service Pack 2. To report a website offering unlicensed copies of Windows XP SP2 for download, please send e-mail to: [email protected]."

In view of this I would be a bit wary of the many other sites offering SP2.

the link you provided took me to Gmail

  ventanas 12:35 12 Aug 2004

I didn't provide the link. That was part of the text on the MS site. If you wanted to use it you would probably have to go to the Microsoft site itself click here

The MS link you gave, is it real? I understand SP2 will not be available for a while.

  Graham ® 14:24 12 Aug 2004

I've mailed MS about the site posted earlier. Not going to put a link on here :-)

SP2 for home use is not yet released, the one out now is for corporate users and is a large download. Go for it if you can't wait.

  TomJerry 14:44 12 Aug 2004

just downloaded. Home users are not idoits.

Downloaded my SP2 from here click here any probs with this site, mind you I haven't launched it yet, got cold feet at last minute, I feel if it ain't broke why fix it, but basically I'm not like that I think I need the SP2 fix because it's there.

The network version on this site will do just the same as the "optimised" version available soon. It will examine your computer, decide what sections of SP2 you need and proceed to install them, after quite a long time backing up, creating restore point and uninstall info. The version that will be available on WinUpdate will do just the same, but wjile you are on line. Hell for dialup. And still a pain for BB users. Much quicker to get it on your machine first.

Graham ® Sorry if I sounded a bit abrubt in the other thread this morning. I was in one heck of a rush.

The one that I downloaded was from a non-Microsoft site (eon't post it) but just pointed to the Microsoft download as above. Had it been from www. I would have aborted.
