Have tried Registry searches, Spyware searches, Antivirus searches with no success. Any browser stops working after 10 minutes of turning the computer on (whether I access the Internet or not). This is driving me crazy. Any help is appreciated

Do I want to install Windows Service Pack 2? Everything is running so smooth. Do I take the chance?

Short story, if you want continued support for your OS you will. Non SP2 OS's are no longer supported. The list of reasons for not doing it, are mitigated by that mere statement. There was a time there was an argument for not installing it, not any longer. In fact many hardware manufacturers will not support their hardware not running with SP2. If you do not care about security or support, then it's your choice.
