Exclamation XP Users Take Note:

WindowsXP SP2 has been released. Just thought this was a big enough deal to put on the Back Porch, since it includes a nice pop-up blocker.

https://dfwstangs.net/forums/showthread.php?t=188164

Feel free to move it back to the Computer Forum where it belongs, Brad.

upgrade Windows XP Beta to XP Final today with SP2. Seriously.. this should and will fix a lot of crap... everyone should install it.. I would recommend a reinstall of XP apply this update, (then do windows update just to make sure you got everything) then reinstall all of your apps.

this is by far the most important and robust Windows Update Microsoft has every put out.

This really should have been released as a new o/s, Like XP SE, but alas, it's free

Dialupers:

Very shortly Microsoft will have a form up to fill out so you can get SP2 for free on CD by mail.
