I have come across many bad upgrades of ie 7 where uninstalling it was the only viable option.
Maybe so, but does not necessarily mean that he should use Firefox or any other browser, I have found in my experience that often if I upgrade a piece of software it comes across buggy, whereas if I do a complete fresh install it works a lot better without so many crashes.

IE 7 works pretty well in my opinion, and depending on the mood of the day will use either firefox or IE 7. Anyway to prevent this degenerating into an argument of IE vs Firefox, when was the last time you did a complete fresh install, you say that you found it slower when you upgraded to SP2, and you have uninstalled it.

Personally I thought that SP2 filled a lot of security holes so I wouldn't be using XP with just SP1...

Time tells all, but if the moment in time passes and you miss it, then you will remember it for ever!!

Totally agree, SP1 is totally outdated now. It only comes with ICF instead of windows firewall etc.
