Recently downloaded latest issue of Defender in response to a prompt, but when I tried to install I got a message saying it needed SP2.
I assumed there was some sort of file corruption, so as I still have my PCA SP2 disc so I put it in, expecting to get a "repair/modify" option. In fact it did a full install from scratch, and when I rebooted I had a notification of no less than 53 Windows updates to install!
I've done all the necessary, and all is well, but I'm just wondering if anyone else has had to reinstall SP2 before being able to install the latest Defender Beta?
No, that's what puzzles me. SP2 was installed from the PCA disc when it was first issued with the magazine, and while I've had to "Restore" once or twice since then, I've had no major crashes or glitches, and no indication that SP2 was no longer installed. Of course, with no indication, I've had no reason to check by right clicking "my Computer".
I would think it's pretty hard to "accidentally" remove SP2. I've never tried it, but I would think you would get at least one confirmation screen, and probably a couple of options to pick as well.
