    Hi,

    My System

    Kerio 2.15
    Prevx Home
    Process Guard 3.1 - Free

    Windows XP Home SP1
    Mozilla Firefox (Use it for 99% of browsing)
    Mozilla Thunderbird (Use it for all email)
    Mailwasher 1.33
    Safe XP (Recommended Settings)


    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??

    Would I have to reset any changes that are made using Safe XP before applying the
    Upgrade?

    I am using Process Explorer and enabled it to replace Task Manager, would this
    have to be changed back and lastly how would I do it?

    Thanks.

    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.
