I have Service Pack 2, but I don't think I've ever downloaded SP1 or SP1a. Do I still need the first service pack now that I have already downloaded and installed the second one? Thanks in advance for any help/responses.

No you don't need earlier service packs. The later Service Packs incorporate all the previous patches and updates.

Before upgrading to SP2 make sure your system is Virus and Spyware free or you can have serious problems.

Very likely it would. It is vital to have a clean system before doing something like that.
