    this may be a stupid question but what are the advantages of installing xp sp1 when it finally comes out?? will it improve system performance at all or is it a bunch of junk that doesnt really do anything? my xp works good right now but if xp sp1 will somehow improve it, i would definitely install it. if not, i wont bother. i dont really understand what the service pack does so if anyone can help me out, i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

  3. u_diddy, from what I gather, SP1 will install fixes and updated versions of files that have more fixes than what the stuff on Windows Update take care of. That's what someone told me anyway.

    Undoubtedly, a lot of security fixes will be included, and compliance toward the enforcement of the new rules that Microsoft be less restrictive of other companies, allowing them in with their software more easily; or rather, giving us a choice more readily... like the ability to uninstall Windows Media Player and Messenger through the Disk Cleanup utility like other optional components.

    SP 1 ?

    XP Pro and the home version are running on millions of computers all over the world without any problems. The only few fixes that are necessary depending upon individual needs are some security fixes that are already out there in Windows updates. Besides this a compatibility issue has also been addressed. My XP Pro is running flawlessly since the day it came out. The major changes are with reference to the Supreme court decision to allow XP users to make their own choice with the media players and messenger, both of which can be easily ignored and use whatever your needs are. In any case, majority of us will still stick to IE as opposed to Netscape. So my point is why the hype about the upcoming SP 1 ?

    I noticed in the newest build of the XP SP it greatly increased bootup times. Things seem to be running more smoothly too.
