Default New to XP

Ok, I have now banished the OS that was the spawn of satan, and I have replaced it with XP. So far, I love it. Much better than ME.

So, I have SP 2; but I am pretty sure I need other upgrades/patches for XP.

What upgrades/patches do I need, and any that you believe are helpful would be nice.

You will need SP 2 but before you do the update this is mandatory reading. XP is a VERY demanding O/S. If you don't work with it it will drive you crazy. http://www.scotsnewsletter.com/best_of/xpsp2links.htm

SP2 came with the XP I purchased. I don't have to download it. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

I am running windows update, and will all of the upgrades I need go through there?
