Default Should I install SP2?

I'm currently am having those reboots with my winxp pro edition. Those blue screens keep popping up with errors.

I went to the microsoft site and they suggested to install SP2. Should I? I've heard there's been a lot of problems with this.

yes you should install SP2, i got it installed on my machine and it works like a charm. without SP2 my computer tends to screw up alot. so it all depends on your needs, and if you need a good popup blocker sp2 comes with one for IE, i like it.

Being realistic
I haven't seen a computer problem that was fixed by installing sp2. In fact, in my experience, if you already have problems, they progress after installation. However, I do suggest installing sp2 in a computer that has no problems because of the security features.

Default Sp2

Service Pack 2 is great I mean of course you get Windows FireWall which really is just kinda there. and They have a great pop up blocker installed and it automatically monitors yur antivirus settings. GO WITH SP2
