Your opinion on Windows XP SP2
    #3712693 - 02/01/05 12:01 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I'm contemplating on installing the SP2 update, but I first want some feedback from you guys on what your opinions/problems concerning SP2 are.
Before I do the actual update.

You're feedback will be appreciated.  :smirk:

I haven't had any problems with it... some people have had problems until they turn off the firewall part with some peer to peer programs.

It gets worse and worse. Goodbye raw sockets, by the way. A lot of older applications may have trouble because of DEP. *shakes head*

My opinion on Windows XP SP2? Horrid. Leave for *n?x post-haste.

But that's just me.

SP2 hasn't provided any noticable problems for me. it seemed more like a fix for dumbassitis. one big plus is the ability to update a new install with a single patch as opposed to dozens. i'm getting really tired of updating my slipstreamed install disk.

It gave me problems. I use VPN to connect to clients and it fucked that up. I had to turn off the firewall (I don't need it anyway) by going into services, disabling it and shutting it down. But every time I add a new network connection, window turns it back on. So after disabling and shutting down again, I then ran the following command in the run box... "sc delete Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)" this removes the references to it in the registry so Windblows won't keep turning it back on.

I also ran into problems when I ran the system file checker program from the run box... "Sfc /Scannow" The program will ask for your XP installation CD to repair corrupted/bad files but when I tried this it told me that I had the wrong installation disk (because I had installed SP2).

** edit ** Another thing. With SP2, I can no longer see my print server on my home office network. I had to change my print server to a static IP and re-install my printer by putting it's network location in manually because XP could not find it on the network.

Oh, FUCK WINBLOWS. I only use the piece of shit operating system because I have to be compatible with my clients and some only have Client software or VPN software that will run on XP (I program on Mid-range systems).

I work as a PC tech-support agent.

SP2 has caused SO MANY problems with SO MANY computers since it has come out...I'm not going to touch it with a ten foot pole!

I've heard that's true. However, it's never given me any problems. I understand it patches some security holes in IE, so if you use that browser, you may want to consider getting it....

sp2 is just fine.
just modify the services so that the security center bs is disabled.
oh, and if you use p2p, you need to tweak the tcp connections - ms limited it to curb p2p. if you're interested, I'll post the link.

oh, yeah - I recommend slipstreaming sp2 rather than just installing it ontop of your prexisting windows installation.

Please give me a link on how to make such a cd. (The way you do it, or give me a link to download the ISO file)  :grin:

for services to disable, visit blackviper.com - security center, windows firewall - disable those.

for tcp tweak: http://www.lvllord.de

for slipstreaming: http://www.autopatcher.com/autostreamer.html
download the sp2 file and use autostreamer to put the disc together.

When I tried installing it the first time, my box just rebooted over and over until I rolled it back.

Will try your fix, bi0.

slipstreaming is the way to go.
never install ontop of another installation - things get weird.

Thanks.

The Autostreamer in your link can't be found (404 error) . Is there another place you can think of to find it? I googled already.

Is nlite as good?
