Hi All

If you want the full XP sP2, here is a place to get it

click here


It hasn't appear on Windows Update yet and when it does, it will probably flood MS servers, so get it now while the speeds are good.

This site above was been mentioned a few times on this forum and I wrote to the Webmaster to say thanks. He answered (some snips)...

'If you can point people to The Software Patch via links in forums and sites, then this will help beginners keep up to date and avoid nasties like Sasser and Blaster. The more people who are updated, the better the Web will be for everyone.'

That's pretty good advice!

Everyone has installed it, reported the problems and them microsoft rectify them... and I know what to expect.


My PC's are running flawlessly at the moment.

From ventanas link:

'DO NOT CLICK DOWNLOAD IF YOU ARE UPDATING JUST ONE COMPUTER: A smaller, more appropriate download will be available soon on Windows Update. '

Whyever not. It does the same job, and if like me you only have BB at work there is no other choice.

Folk can make up their own minds.

No criticism intended, but it's a hefty download at 272391 kb for someone on dial-up. They may benefit by waiting for the smaller version.
