XP service packs?

  Taurus 18:38 15 Oct 2006

Evening all, I have just finished re-installing Windows xp Pro and I have downloaded SP2, my question is, should I download SP1 as well or does SP2 cover the areas that 1 did?

I reinstalled Xp last week, because of a problem. I have Sp2 on a disc, but when I got as far as updating via the microsoft site, there was still 60 others to download.
In answer to your question though, I have always thought that 2 covered what was in 1.

SP2 includes SP1 and more!

Thanks SB23, I think that's the case too, but I want to be sure as the reason I had to re-instal was because a particularly sticky Trojan that got into my system via a windows vulnerability and I want to make sure I'm as safe as possible.

Thanks Powerless, that's a relief to know I'm covered. thanks again to you both.
