SP2 is all you need.. the SP's are cumulative... run winders update after the install just to make sure you have everything.

SP2 screwed up all of my programs. I had to uninstall it. I could not open up any my programs after I downloaded it. I uninstalled it and everything works fine now.

Yeah, I've heard that SP2 is fucked up and everyone should wait until Microsoft figures out the bugs before you put it on your comp.

Yea, I got the new SP. It seems to work fine. But I just noticed that when I try dl some videos that I get in my MSN Hotmail account. It won't let me. It just closes that page and makes the quick beep.

For those of you having problems with SP2, try disabling the Internet Firewall (Network Properties, Adapter properties, Advanced) I know a few PPPoE providers have issues with SP2 because the firewall is enabled by default.

As for SP2 breaking shit, hahahaha...I rarely get calls on SP2. Of the ones I get things broke because the numbnut's computer is loaded with spyware/adware and viruses. Clean yo shit before you patch and you won't have problems.
