no uninstall,but what about system restore?i have downloaded it but not yet installed it,so i am curious as to the problems you had,and wether system restore would be sufficient?any one else had problems?

Calm down dear, its only a beta version.....
Dont waste your time installing this unless you want hassle later on, wait for the final version to come out. One thing SP2 does it add some new security protocols (for wireless especially) and turns them all on by default so if your using a wireless network now you may have to fiddle with settings and stuff to get it working again.

snap, if it ain't broke............... TR

It is broke that is why MS decided to create 200 odd MB of a service pack.

Drive image is useful when there is no uninstall.

I bet i'm the one that said it could be unistalled right? :-((( from: click here

XP SP2 can be uninstalled from "Add or Remove Programs". Just click the box marked "Show Updates" and it appears as Windows XP Service Pack 2".

Incidentally, I've had it installed since 21 Mar and have found it to be exceptionally stable and bug free for a BETA - no crashes amd only minor incompatibilities with some pretty obscure system utilities and skinning programmes.

Windows Service Pack 2 will not be released till June? what you have are beta versions and probably a lot of it will be scrapped when the final version is released.

It can be uninstalled and there was no problems as such just a few hickups the security feature is about the only thing ive noticed as yet that seems to have changed apart from a few icons here and there but its running ok now its been set up,and it seems stable enough and the patches
it sorts those itself so i needent have worried.

Its a bit foolish installing beta software really,, especially when its into the core of your computer, the OS....
