Many other programs, including UT 2003 may not function properly.

M$ knows of this issue. Over here it was on the news that service pack 2 has alot of "features" as M$ likes to call bugs. The problem is that M$ had so many port breaches in XP, that they radically shut them all down. It is advised not to instal until it is fixed.

I had my video output from my AtI9700pro go off randomly during games or surfing the net. I did a fresh install WITHOUT Sp2 and everything is back to normal. I'd wait for at least 5 months until they fix their bloatware child

I just installed SP2 a few minutes ago, crashed many times, and came here for help. Glad to see there is already a thread about this. I guess I'll uninstall BF and my mods, reinstall and see what happens.

Ok, still crash to desktop when about to connect to/or just got into a multiplayer server. If I load a map, I crash just as I'm able to select a spawn point so about 10 seconds into the game after load.

I uninstalled everything Battlefield, mods and all, wiped my registry of it and reinstalled just Vanilla and the same problem still happening. Single player works fine, as does the multiplayer demo. Can anyone help?
