can't guarantee absolutely nothing to worry about as it's such a major update, almost like a "Windows XP Third Edition". However, I can tell you that I'm using it and it works fine. But since everyone's PC has different applications on it, and some of those apps may not like SP2, that's why a problem-free environment after installing it can't be guaranteed.
Many of those who ranted and raved that SP2 messed up their PC will have already had underlying problems before that, which either they weren't aware of or failed to put right first.
You can minimise the risk of installation problems by carrying out these tasks just before installing SP2:
1. Check C drive is free from viruses and other malware.
2. Run a disk-check on drive C to correct any file-system errors.
3. Defragment the C drive.
4. Disable antivirus while installing SP2.
5. Don't have any other applications open while installing SP2.
