would'nt worry about downloading sp2 i tried and had the same problem my computer went all funky so i got rid of it and just stuck with sp1 and all my problems went away i think sp2 does'nt react properly with a lot of programs so anyway if i where you i would do a system restore back to before you downloaded sp2 i did and eveything went back to normal i'm sticking with sp1 for now.
Last night I naively started downloading MS SP2 (plus 2 other XP fixes). Here is what happened.
I was using a verizon DSL. I rarely have this computer hooked to the internet.
a) The download was quite slow given that I am on DSL.
After about an hour - the SP2 download "failed" at about 80% completion
c) The other 2 XP fixes appeared to download and install OK.
But - here are my problems/questions
1) During the download - I noticed that I was sending as much data as I was receiving - very odd.
2) After the download (and after several reboots) I noticed that my DSL connection is useless - I can't connect to any web-sites. But it is still the case that my DSL connection is 'sending' a lot of data.
3) I noticed that Windows Update kept on trying to complete the SP2 download. I went ahead and turned off automatic-updates - but that didn't help the problem in item2).
Has my computer been hijacked? I will be running adaware and hihackthis tonight.
Is there some other potential explanation for what is going on?
