I have just downloaded and installed SP2 and I was surprised how quick it took! It says on the Microsoft update website that it would take over an hour on my 512 kbps broadband connection but it actually took just over 45 minutes! I don't know whether this had anything to do with me downloading in the small hours of the morning!
I was reading loads of scare stories about SP2 and so I have decided to try it out for myself and so far I have found NO problems. Early days yet but here's hoping! IMHO well worth trying out as long as you have made a backup and/or enabled System Restore. CW
I downloaded SP2 yesterday and from the reboot my machine became slower than my first 286. I have uninstalled it now and things are back to normal. I think it might be because I have Norton Internet security and a firewall on my router so it was slowing down my surfing. It was actually taking ages to boot up and open programs. It is worth a try, but I'll be living without it on my Mesh Matrix 2600
