The SP2 Upgrade Blues

There is a good post at the O'Reilly WIndows DevCenter: bq. How to Cure the SP2 Upgrade Blues The Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) is a boon for people looking for safer browsing, built-in pop-up killing, and better wireless access. But that doesn't mean that it's perfect--far from it. It's caused all kinds of problems on many people's systems, and yours may be one of them. So if you're running into trouble with SP2 or are thinking of upgrading, the Power Hound has help with some of the most common problems you may run into. This week the Power Hound tackles two SP2 upgrade problems that deal with configuring pop-up blocking and the firewall. The upgrade is worth getting but with something this complex running on as many different systems as it does, there are bound to be some 'surprises'.
