Replying to Xp Service Pack 2
Posted 04 October 2005 - 12:12 PM
But I have seen than in some of computers the system crashes out after installing sp2 and they have to format their system. It don't work even after switching back to last known configuration.
In the last I would say that it is worth to update your xp to sp2.

and I have heard that as far as the firewall goes, SP2 has the same as SP1, just with a newer UI, is this true?

The firewall is really bad, i could easily hack myself!
So, i think you better have sp1

Oh, and at least XP dosen't have as many service packs as Windows 2000.
and who knows, maybe you've been hacked, and you don't know about it?

All in all it seems to be an ok update no real problems bar the one mentioned. but personally i'd prefer if our company would just chuck windows and head over to linux. would make my life easier (not so many problems!)

What most people forget is that the user makes the system (un)safe. What are you with alerts if you ignore them ? Most important thing is not to spread all your information on the internet, do not subsribe to maliscious sites/mails and use opensource/free software.
I use Opera for internet and mail, mercury for IM, I'm behind a router + Sygate PF and I have avast installed and lets not forget adaware and s&d.
Keeps me safe, w/o SP2
(p.s. I might sound a bit aggressive, but I've just written an essay about it for school which is written contra-M$, so I'm now in an aggressive mood )
