My pc keeps asking me to up date windows and its service pack 2 that it wants.

A few people have told me not to do this as its no good!,Just want to know your opinions on this.

Cheers Glen...

I updated to Windows XP SP2 a while ago. I've not had any problems with it; it fixes quite a few security flaws, and I like the additional features added to Internet Explorer, especially the popup blocker. I would definitely recommend updating to it.

Do it - installed it
on numerous occasions without any probs at all. Might be worth
downloading the full administrator install, but at 266MB it's quite a
download unless you have broadband...

SP2 shouldnt cause any problems for gamers. It was jsut a few bespoke applications in the early days.

Get SP2 sorted. Once you have installed, RUN A DEFRAG. It helps no end, and you will probably find the machine much faster for it.

I wouldn't do it unless you are doing a fresh install. A lot of people had endless problems whilst sticking it on an already existing system. I personally just haven't bothered.
Ditto Nick. The twice ive installed SP2 over a fully installed pc its went up its own backside. When installed onto a fresh windows install it runs great though.... much quicker and more stable.

when you say a fresh install do you mean after the system restore disc's?
If your experienced enought, then I think he means a blank install of XP, followed by SP2. However it may be worth trying it with your system restore discs if you have any trouble in its present state. I for one have had no issues, and indeed sp2 is excellent.[:D]
