What do you expect? Microsoft are not renowned for "finishing". Don't get me wrong, I think XP is great, and I'm not of the "I hate Microsoft" school. I just wish they could get it properly right for once and forget the hype - just deliver!
I expect everyone else who has installed xp2 and it must be millions by now will wish they had got it right especially if they end up with problems.I hope this site you have posted has informed microsoft of their findings.Regards
well folks what puzzles me is that microsoft issued a d/load where one could by using this prevent auto update installing it til one is ready and quite frankly if microsoft issue that facility what price SP2?
johnnyrocker is quite correct - Microsoft made the d/load of the fix/blocker specifically for business users so that they could postpone for a couple of months the auto download of SP2 so as to allow more time for systems administrators to check for possible software incompatibilities.
This is a completely separate issue to XP2 downloading in dribs and drabs to domestic users machines.
