I need download Service Pack 2 help please

  bof:) 23:58 22 Feb 2008

Hi all, I've been given my sons Tiny laptop.

Its running on WinXP Home SP1 and I need to get it updated to service pack 2. Could any one please supply a repuatable site to get the SP2 download from.

I've turned the Automatic Updates on but for some reason SP2 is not in the list of updates.

many thanks,

You can download SP2 from:

You could also add SP3 RC2, which would bring the system right up to date, but the final version may be a little while away.

I've had no problems using SP3 RC1 over the past month since installing it and the final version is unlikely to be very much different.

If you can wait for SP3, sometime in the middle of next month, SP2 is included; click here
