Does anyone know the exact date that Service Pack 2 will be released for Windows XP Home? I read about it in PC World magazine but all they said about its release was in the spring/summer of this year and that it would be a free update. Any one have any new information?

Not everyone who runs their computer without the firewall are Idiots. I don't have the firewall activated because I can't, because my computers hooked up to a network with file sharing and with firewall enabled, I can't access the shared files or play games.

Apparantly you DO have a firewall, built into the router.

the emazing firewall, its there, it isnt there, who knows where it is, Mad Designer doesnt. lol.

so do you have a firewall or dont you, if you do you can still use all the network resources, you just need to read up about the firewall you have open channels safely for in house network use.
