If you are sure your computer has no malware, go ahead and install SP2. Do any critical back ups and make a manual restore point beforehand. Very few problems are being reported with SP2 anymore- it's been out for over a year. The easiest way to get it from the MS site. If you download the whole thing out of the catalog, it is 272,391Kb and will contain stuff you don't need, but won't hurt.

You didn't answer my question about your XP cd? If you don't have it, let me know.
