Hi Bill, I found it reinstall a few programs I do not care for. Macromedia flas, MSN Messenger and Windows Messenger. I have put together some information links here; http://www3.telus.net/mikebike/XPSP2_links.htm Mike ~ one of the Moderators It is a good day if I learned something new.

I for one will not install SP2 until I find out a lot more about what privileges it takes over for me, that I may not want it to. What can you tell us about that, Mike?
