    ¿Would it be more sensible to look on the Microsoft web-site?

    Microsoft XP Service Pack 2 due in August
    Online July 13th 2004


    Microsoft will release the long awaited Service Pack 2 in August. The major update to Windows XP focuses on boosting protection against malicious intrusions, USA TODAY reports.

    Microsoft, dogged for years by attacks that take advantage of vulnerabilities in its dominant Windows operating system, is hoping the free upgrade will reduce disruptive and costly interruptions.

    Microsoft is urging home users to turn on a function that allows Microsoft to automatically download security updates, so they are set to receive SP2 as soon as it becomes available.

    Users also can go to Microsoft's security Web site to get the download once it is available, and Microsoft will send out SP2 CDs to consumers who request them.

    SP2 is expected to be between 80MB and 120MB in size.

    Turning it on.., isn&#39;t that how alot of Microsoft&#39;s problems come about, due to turning on Microsoft&#39;s services, thus exposing users to attacks

    80 to 120megs? Thats again, alot of patching and poor coding on the part of the developers. How big is the baseinstall to begin with? And you then applying 120megs worth of patches to the system. and this is the second "Service Package"to come about.

    :huh: are you seirous?

    That will take my years on my internet connection (connects at 44,000 bps)

    Why is it so big? I&#39;ll have to leave it going over night, and my monthy MB price will be huge&#33;

    Stupid Microsoft :angry:

    I e-mailed a microsoft lad and asked when SP2 is expected.. because i was curious

    He said 15th of July, and now your saying August :blink:

    It will probably never end up coming.

    XP Service Pack 1 was 113 megs. Just think, in the case of Win NT 4, it end up having 6 service packs. Just more to expect i suppose with the XP series as well.

    :blink: How much do they need to update Xp? SP2 is going to have all the setup centre or something making sure you have firewall (ahhh yes, windows firewall) and antiviurus, what else? what can you ad? and updating all WMP and outlook express.

    I Hope it don&#39;t have 6 service packs
