A Laptop with Windows XP and no SP2!!!

  Sabi 00:07 30 Nov 2006


I have a laptop which crashed on me over a year ago when I was downloading SP2!!!

During the download, the laptop froze!! I got fed up and switched it off!! When I turned it back on again, it asked me to remove the unfinished download and start fresh again. I foolishly ignored the message. The laptop didn’t work after that!

Few days ago someone kindly helped me to bring it back to life again!

The laptop has Windows XP but not SP2!!!
It might sound silly but I don’t know where to get that from!!! Is it from MS web site? And would it be a problem going on line without SP2 (speed wise)?

Many thanks

should not be a prob i think but there again someone might know better, speed is not an issue

Speed is not the issue but security and other things such as networking etc.
