well. its been along time coming but SP1 is here on my pc after waiting 2 hours for it to download. Installation is a doddle. Unfortuantly that is the only good thing that i can say about this major update. Since installing SP1 late last night my machine has gone loopy. For example failure to complete loading windows. meaning that i have to reboot the pc try again. The usb ports malfuntion in that i now have to unplug my mouse and plug it back in for windows to recognise it. (And yes i have the most recent drivers!) When installing SP1 sets a restore point. Tried removing SP1 via this and nowt happened. Anyone got any ideas? I love XP but hate SP1 !
