Hi everyone

I'm new to this particular board but I enjoy reading this kind of board as I can always learn something new.

I am currently running an AMD 2500+ barton core at 1.8 Ghz and WinXP Pro

I am struggling to decide if I want to install SP2 or not. I don't use M$ IE or Outlook at all and these are the areas of attack from most hackers. I run Norton AV and AVG as a backup virus program and I have a good router firewall, too.

Anybody want to weigh in on the SP2 issue, feel free.

C-ya around!!

Despite all the problems that some people have had with it, the added security features suggest that you install it, although you seem to have all the security areas well-in-hand.
