I have managed to get SP2 installed on my XP Home laptop through automatic updates. So far all is well even with Norton Internet Security etc.
I have now decided to try it on one of my XP Pro machines. However, can you use automatic updates to install on an XP Pro machine? I keep telling the machine to update, I set a time, the time goes by and nothing happens. This has happened over and over again.
Can the installer be downloaded (and yes I do know next months PC Advisor has a CD of it).
The correct version for XP Pro. will be available for download through Auto update from the 25th. Much better to wait another 2 days as your PC will be scanned and only the required files will be downloaded.
All other sites offering the download at the moment are unofficial or the ones that have the early release that was made available to BETA testers as a way of saying thank you for the testing. j.
