i have installed it from dling from microsoft, no problems so far. i was testing it to c if it is bugged, as i was gona reinstall my pc, and i was curious. the sp2 actually straightened my pc up a bit, just a few modifications i did. But It really depends, some people do actually have problems with it. So i would be carefull
