When SP2 is installed, it adds a "security center" which basically checks three areas,
Auto-updating of winXP
Initially, there is quite a lot of action on it's part scrambling to:
A. Let you know it's there.
B. Identify anti-virus programs and if it doesn't recognize any, tell you about it.
C. Puts it's pitch in for (and explains it all) auto-updating.
D. Warns you of firewall status, whether there is a recognized third party one, etc.
Those startups indicate thats going on and you haven't fully satisfied the OS that
the Security Center is correctly configured, by doing all the prompts I'm sure you've seen so far.
Its a good opportunity to confuse things by using spybot S&D "prematurely".
Windows working just as good as b4 = maybe. Probably. It may bite you down the road, though. If you aren't sure of what those .dlls are doing ...
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...
