XP SP2 Problems
Got my first call from someone that has SP2 causing them problems. Actually I’ve heard of two other folks with issues. Some folks think 1 in 10 will have problems with an upgrade, so beware. At my house, I have one SP2 machine that I installed as a greenfield installation, so I’m experimenting myself. Here are some of the problems:
* NewsFactor Network – Enterprise – Microsoft Lists XP SP2 Problems. Main issues have to do with applications incompatibility. Antivirus programs, Yahoo Messenger, ICQ are on the list.
* “Official List of XP2 Problems”:http://support.microsoft.com/?id=884130. There appear to be some software that just breaks and another list that doesn’t get along with the builtin firewall that is now turned on by default. Lots of games also break.
* “SP2 Uninstall”:http://www.computing.net/windowsxp/wwwboard/forum/113726.html. So how do you get rid of SP2 is pretty easy (if you pray). Go to the control panel and choose add/remove programs and hopefully you’ll get rid of it.
