My sister's boyfriend works at IBM---he said that when SP2 was initially released, no microsoft program worked in any IBM company machine in his office after they were updated.

Huge headache, apparently.

SP2 is junk, it ran like sh** for me.

My Reasons=
1. Keeps on telling me that I do not have a Firewall (I do)

2. Keeps on telling me Virus Protection was not detected (I have A/V)

3. I disabled the Microsoft Security Center.

4. When I had 512mb of ram, i used to have approx 350mb of free phyiscal memory. But when I went to SP2, I only had 250mb. 100mb were eaten up by SP2.

I keep a dual boot system with SP1 on 1 side, just in case I need to do something like burn an xp disc or download more than 10 thing a once. SP 2 won't let you do that (there a hack for the latter problem though to let sp2 have you download up to 50 things)
