MS SP2 download

I have had to reinstall XP Home and cannot find a download of SP2 on the web.

It seems its installed with new installations.

Anyone can help here please?

Best Charles

If you run Windows Update it should pick up your lack of SP2 and offer it as an update. If you're on dial up and can wait a bit you can also order it on CD from the links in Update.

You may still have it on a cover disk from around last September/October - many magazines provided it at the time when Microsoft temporarily dropped its policy of no longer allowing its products to be included on cover disks.

There was an ulterior motive by MS - the move helped to distribute SP2 far more quickly and widely at the time.
