I've only found one minor annoyance. When using Remote Desktop all mouse pointers, cursors, etc. turn to the Move pointer. A pointer reset in Control Panel fixes it.
Do you know why it happened?? I'm running a "borrowed" copy of winXP. I'm afraid that's gonna happen to me.UR MOTHA said:I installed it and couldn't get back into Windows. Total disaster in my case. Had to reinstall over the old OS so I could keep my files intact. Maybe next time.
Is this the XP Home or Professional version? From what I have read about SP2 it will even load successfully on “pirated” versions of XP. Microsoft seemingly wants all users to benefit from SP2 regardless of the origin of the OS.Naturalhoosier said:Do you know why it happened?? I'm running a "borrowed" copy of winXP.

Thanks for the info. I wasn't sure if it was their way of getting some redemption for those of us that have "borrowed" from them in the past.
EDIT: Where did you go to dl SP2? I just checked for updates and it said I was uptodate. I know I haven't dl'ed SP2 yet. Thanks.
I think service packs are more than just collections of hotfixes.I don't think there's any reason to d/l sp2 if you've already got sp1 and install all the updates for it. It's pretty much the same thing then.
The pop up blocker now in IE works great. I need to use & deploy SP2 at work, so I'm seeing what it is about.MainFrame said:I don't think there's any reason to d/l sp2 if you've already got sp1 and install all the updates for it. It's pretty much the same thing then.
PS, I had to change my serrial number for the sp1 install.. can't imagine it'll be any harder for sp2.
