i didn't really expect anyone to be negative towards SP2, it's a service pack lol. plus it only took my system like 15min once downloaded for it to complete installation with the reboot and whatnot. So if you wanted could make a restore point then install. Find anything you don't like then go back to the system restore, but i dout you will as the only difference i've noticed is my system is "snappier" as someone put it earlier. Most people jump for joy with SP releases, u boys got my confuzzled
any particular reason u don't want to install SP2 besides the lack of desire to take the time to update?
