First post.
My PC is plagued with spyware, Trojan, and perhaps virus problems as well. I've read thru the initial procedures, which includes installing Win XP SP1a. If I'm already running XP with SP1, do I still need to install SP1a? Microsoft's site says if you're already using SP1, then SP1a is not recommended. I just want to be correct wtih each of the steps I take toward a cure.

Thanks much for your great service,
Sgooter
