Service Pack 2

Hi. Apologies if this has already been posted but the search isn't working, for me at least...

I haven't installed SP2 yet and wanted to know if there is a risk that it might cause problems and make my pc unstable - i'm running xp pro on a AMD Duron 1.2ghz with 640mb ram in case this helps.

Have there been (m)any knightmare stories of problems having installed it?

Have a look in the SP2 forum (Look top left) you will find a mixed bag of stories.

In general the overwhelming majority of people have installed with no problem.

Running XP SP2 on Athlon 1.2 with 512Mb RAM no problems.

Yup installed and no significant problems
(i do notice however that ActiveSync to my spv smartphone keeps disconnecting since, and the blocking feature is a bit annoying in that it doesnt remember your last choice to 'Unblock'
