Did anyone have the problem like me that every time you wanted to install a program/update/patch with InstallShield Wizard that it would freeze while loading data to your computer? I had a difficult problem with it and it took me along time to locate (4 hours and 10's of reboots). After running the msconfig program and in the Services section i finally located the problem with the "World Wide Web Publisher". Once unchecking it was fine...did anyone else have the the same sort of problems with SP2 for XP? I still haven't let SP2 go fully operational yet. Has anyone else come across the same sort of problems yet??

My PC will not download it, no matter how hard I try. Oh well, with the things I've heard about it, I'm not missing out on anything.

Well some programs are bound to have problems when a new service pack came out, I was getting errors in PC games with it but they disappeared after a while. That's Windows for you ;)
