Service pack 2 gives you a more secure computer, (before you install it, run disc clean up, disc defragmneter and run a virus scan, then install the updates from here)

http://update.micros...t.aspx?ln=en-us

Plus you can install media player 10 or 11

Aslo Internet Explorer 7 beta 3

Which leaves system restore, which you can fix now if you like because SP2 will set restore points and it needs to be on if you want to roll back a windows media player installation, you need the XP CD

1. Click Start, click Run, type %windir%\inf and press enter

2. Locate the Sr.inf file, (listed as Sr), right-click the file, and then click Install.

3. In the Files Needed dialog box, click Browse. Locate the Sr.sy_ file in the i386 folder of the Windows XP CD, click the file, and then click Open.

4. When the installation is completed, restart your computer
