Hi without SP2 installed your computer can become a hackers paradise, and open to viruses. All the problems that people suffered when SP2 was installed, was not down to SP2 but the firm who supplied the software that they sold and could not be bothered to update.
I don't know wwhere you live but here in UK I help run and look after computer,s if I go and find out that they have not got SP2 then I am not allowed to even try to see what is wrong, untill it is installed and a sticker has to be placed inside on the hard drive to that effect.
I would like to meet these noobs, or so called narrow minded people, and show the differents between running a computer with SP2 and one not.. I have done it and the one with SP2 over a week had nothing on it, the one without crashed 16 times, because of the virus and other stuff it had on it.
As for your mums firm then either they are nearly skint or the boss is a miser, because no firm over here would run their computers without SP2 it was them that was being hit that is why SP2 was bought out.
So get withit and get another computer, or when your one crashes at home make sure to dont send this forum any e-mails because they could be carrying trogan,s.
