    when I open up nero I get a compatibility error that comes up but I just click ok or continue and have burned a bunch of cds and dvds without a problem...

    also when I open office xp I get an error in the the beginning again but I just click ok and have not noticed and real problems so far

    I'm guessing that's IF you decide to use the Windows XP Firewall. Windows XP Firewall disabled; no problems here.

    What is this suppose to mean:
    "The following table lists programs that may behave differently after you install Windows XP SP2:"????

    And why couldn't they put it alphabetically? Seems Bill is up to his old tricks.

    If you look it's done alphabetically by the software maker. ;) Though it would have been easier if it was done by program.

    That's what I meant. :D I wouldn't know who developed what program but the name of the program I know. :confused:

    At first I would get path errors when I launched a proggy from quick launch, but after a couple of reboots the path errors stopped.

    My concern now it that everytime I reboot, the "My Documents" folder opens and it is becoming annoying.

    Has anyone else experienced this and if so has anyone found a solution to prevent this from happening?

    Thx ahead!

    Peace!

    Thanks for the link. ROFLMFAO.

    That looks like a list of all the major software in use for the past 4 years. Think I'll wait 6 months to upgrade (if ever).

    Negative! Nothing in msconfig or reg "run".

    Leaving the firewall on isn't a big deal. They just tend to nag you about a possible security problem with certain programs, but if you trust the program (like many on the list there), you can just ignore the firewall and let it run anyway.

    Seeing "Diet Kazaa" on there kind of made me laugh, though...lol.
