Hi, no it will not delete your files and pics.

no it does not change any of your own material.
Make sure you clean your system before installing

No it will just update the windows files your personal files will be intact,but i think its more than 75Mb.

It wont delete anything from your system. It just adds and updates system files, not the files you have created.

They only thing you would have to do, is to uninstall your Anti-Virus and Firewall programs as some wont work once you installed SP2 (you can re-install then afterwards with no problems).

Good Luck.
