No the service packs are for everybody. I use the one for networks basically because it has everything in it, and I am on a network, actually so is everybody who uses the Internet, the Internet is the largest network you will ever find. If you also want to keep your computer a lot safer please go to Micosoft and do some reading on the service packs. I believe one of those articles will take you to the service pack page.

Is this the same computer that you were advised to reformat due to malware? Are you trying to install updates after reformatting? If this is the same computer and you haven't reformatted it is usually recommended NOT to install SP2 until the computer is clean.
