    im gonna download SP2 today but i just realized that im running stylexp as well as iconpackager to change the appearance of my OS.
    can i install sp2 safely without worrying of a system crash cuz of these two progs?
    i know that stylexp works with some versions of sp2, so which one works with the final version which was RTM yesterday?

    thx!

    just get the theme dll patcher supports sp2, and then kill windows file proctection, u have to use a hex editor, ill get u the link, then u dont have to use any program its lighter on the pc on recourses since its using it normally instead of a program getting it done

    i dont feel comfortable killing the WFP, plus, hex editing? the program makes it a lot simpler, and it doesnt take up that many resources cuz u can make it not run.

    so in that link u gave me, does the sp1 hex section work for sp2? or does the sp2 have a different hex section?

    If it is still running under processes, then they must have found a way to not have it listed under processes
