anyone have problems after installing sp2? i had some apps and games that did not function proplery and needed to reinstall them.. anybody have the same or simallar conserns?
Can't say I have. I got Service Pack 2 off the windows update site and installed it manually. If you got it from Windows Update automatically, it may have interfeared with running programs. Just a theory. What games do you run? Are they high-spec demanding? With the introduction of the firewall and other background processes, it may be hogging all the juice. Anyway, I'm not sure.
The Firewall may be blocking it. A similar thing happened to me once. Zone Alarm wouldn't let me use MSN Messenger. =/
