XP SP2 Reinstallation

  GregB 13:12 07 Jun 2005


Having spent a long time with NT, it became known to me that good practice was to reinstall the latest service pack after installing any other applications.

Is this still the case with XP? And SP2?

The last time I installed sp2 I did it from a clean installation. Installed xp, installed drivers then service pack 2. That was some months ago now and I have added a number of applications since.

If you mean after you add new applications you need to reinstall then service pack then no I don't think you need to

The only time you need to reinstall SP2 is if you reinstall or repair XP.
