Windows SP2... Is it really that good? Everytime I have been convinced to install this... MONSTROSITY... I have had nothing but trouble. Everytime you want to do, ANYTHING, SP2 stops you, or does something to annoy you or get in your way. I want the best protection around but I want some damned freedom too! Surely, the makers of the internet can just put an end to viruses and malware, there must be some way, other than making SP2... the worst thing that ever happend to Windows.

Please reply with your points and views on Windows Service Pack 2

To tell you the truth im thinking of removing my copy! It does alot of trouble yes it does! Just stay away until they get all the bugs worked out. It really affects your IE browser and the stuff that relies on it. Thats why I want to remove it.
Just my opinion there will be more.

Thanks for your replies but sadly for me, when I was attempting at removing it, it took me a whole day to find it out. And now you tell me :thumbsup:
I am just glad that it's not only ME that feels this way! Btw, use Mozilla Firefox now IE Browser


IE Browser is.. AHHHH!!
