I have had SP2 on my computer for a while now and have found no problems with anything. I like the new features, I would say SP2 has improved the system a lot more. No bugs what so ever.

i had it installed.... but it didn't thrill me that much. for one it makes your computer really impatient if you install updates but choose not to restart (since it warns you like every 10 minutes). also made my computer start up quite a bit slower.

Well I will repeat again as I find it odd with peeps experiences, I installed rc1 sp2 latest build, I got about 400 applications installed. It boots quicker, don't hang as much, apps open quicker, it's like when I first installed sp1 all those moons ago, my system got a kick up the backside and worked faster. I have a 1.5 ghz pent 4, lower market vid card, on board sound, dvd rewriter, tv card, 512 mbram pc 133.

Maybe your spec is lower than mine, if it's more I would be worried.

Lee, was your install of SP2 from a fresh install of XP? if so, that may also be why yours ran faster. My PC specs are in my sig if u haven't noticed.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
