    I have the above software installed. I want to install the Service Pack
    2 To Windows XP Home. I am still on dial up and just recently got my SP2 cd.

    I have recently re-installed all my Os and Software. I have checked on my PC
    Manufacturers website, and downloaded the patches that are recommended
    for their software.

    Would I encounter any incompatabilities with them using Service Pack 2 and how
    much disc (disk!)space would it take up??

    I am using Process Explorer and enabled it to replace Task Manager, would this

    Installing SP2

    I'm not sure anyone can make promises that SP2 will go perfectly. I updated XP Pro SP1a the day it came out without problems. Just this week I clean installed from the SP1a disc and then followed with the SP2 disc without problems. I can't speak about your other software incompatabilities but I've been steadily loading more and more security programs expecting to induce problems. They may not be interacting perfectly but I believe SP2 ia a non issue for me at least.
