XP Home SP2
In Add/Remove I have Windows' updates going back to 2005.
Can I remove most of these without any problem.
How about XP2 if it is there?
Thanks.

Basically No. If they irritate you because the list is so long simply untick the box at the top which says "Show Updates"

Why would you want to uninstall XP SP2?

Updating to XP SP3 will remove all old SP2 updates

Didn't make myself clear.
Don't want to uninstall SP2.
Might chance it and go for SP3, but know several people that have had problems with it.

Thanks.

SP3 has been around for some time now and most users have found it trouble free.Try it ! You can always uninstall it.
