My PC has just informed me that there are updates automatically downloaded and require me to install them. I checked to see what they were and it said "1 update, Service pack 2, express install reccomended." Since I`ve no idea of what it consists of is it safe for me to install. Normally with updates you get to see what they are about and you can install those you want and ignore those you dont. I am on broadband and XP Home. Any advice please on how to proceed. Meshuga.

I would say it's safe to install, it may only be a patch but I suspect it will be the whole of SP2. Mine auto downloaded a few days ago no problems.

Since my posting I`ve been checking other postings on the same subject and the general opinion seems to be the same as yours. Thanks for replying. Meshuga.
