See, folks, this points up exactly what I mean, what I do *not* want done on my machine. I don't want things automatically installed on my machine, including things that have caused "major problems" for other people. As I said in another group: SP2 may have a lot of improvements......but SP1 ain't broke, and it don't need fixin' if it's gonna louse up a bunch of things that I may never be able to fix.
