Blocking delivery of Windows XP SP2 ? Sample email text 

Hello,
Please click on this link to postpone delivery of a software update to
your computer until your IT organization has tested the update and
certified it for installation on your computer:
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=33518  
Once you click on the link, please select ?Open? in the pop up dialog.
You will then be asked if you want to accept the End-User License
Agreement. After you select ?Yes,? you should see a new window briefly
open and close on your computer. 
No further action is required. Thank you for your assistance.
Sincerely,
Your IT administrator.

F.y.i

Since SP2 will start to be delivered to PCs running Windows XP or
Windows XP
with SP1 via AU starting on August 16, these customers would like to
temporarily block the delivery of SP2 in order to provide additional
time for
validation and testing of the update. In response to these requests,
Microsoft is providing the following guidance, resources, and
communication
vehicles to meet the needs of these customers.

Please note that the mechanism to temporarily disable delivery of
Windows XP
SP2 will be available for a period of 120 days (4 months) from August
16. At
the end of this period, Windows XP SP2 will be delivered to all Windows
XP
and Windows XP Service Pack 1 systems.

Found it:

The executable creates the registry key and sets the associated value on
the
machine upon which it is run, to block or unblock (depending on the
command-line option used) the delivery of Windows XP SP2 to that system,
through Automatic Updates or Windows Update. The key used is
HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate. 
When the /B command line option is used, the key value name
'DoNotAllowXPSP2'
is created and its value sets to '1'. This value blocks delivery of
Windows
XP SP2 to the machine through AU or WU. 

When the /U command line option is used, the previously created registry
value that temporarily blocked the delivery Windows XP SP2 to the system
via
Automatic Updates (AU) or Windows Update (WU) is removed. If the value
does
not exist on the system from which it is run, no action is taken.

Does anyone know the actual registry edit that is made when you run the
stop
from MS?
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=33518
Once you click on the link, please select 'Open' in the pop up dialog.
You
will then be asked if you want to accept the End-User License Agreement.
After you select 'Yes,' you should see a new window briefly open and
close on

It has affected software here.  Mainly our anti virus software when the
firewall is turned on as the patched machine no longer allows the
enterprise
manage to automatically update the client as it can't see it.  That is
one
thing I have seen so far.  It has changed the gpedit.msc I have read but
haven't been able to see the difference yet.

It's funny, I received a note from the bank's core software supplier
telling
us not to install SP2 as they were still testing how would it work.  To
bad
that note was after I set it up w/ no problems on my test machines.

Quite a list. By no means exhaustive as MS CRM is not listed.
