SP2 dilemma

  archie330 20:27 07 Jun 2006

My Athlon/XP system is working very well.
Now I am receiving notification from Microsoft that their support for XP SP1 is ending later this year.
I guess they are telling me to install SP2, but I have heard that this can cause some problems (which is why I have retained SP1).
So what do you think, is SP2 OK now?

Thoroughly clean your PC from all viruses and malware. Clean up the crud click here. Install SP2.

"is SP2 OK now?"

SP2 has ALWAYS been OK.

Undertake some basic PC housekeeping before installing it

Unless you have some rather old programs on your computer then SP2 will cause no problems.

Yes, SP2 HAD minor bugs but have been sorted out by now

One caveat if you use Nero, some earlier versions
didn't like SP2 (usually the In CD) and caused Windows to crash but Nero have downloadable patches that fix this so it's worth checking their website if this could apply to you.
