    I wish i had you're luck bigc.

    A long time a go i tried to download and install WMP 9. It totally screwed up my system.

    Reformatted and stuck with WMP 8 and as far as SP2 well, i may never install that thing.

    System's running good now so.....

    Hi guys :)

    I just have a quick question in regards to SP2. I still haven't installed SP2, since I'm still not sure about. I probably won't have any problems, but in the event that I do have problems, it would be impossible to uninstall it and go back to before the service pack was installed? I mean, since SP2 overwrites SP1? Until I get my system restore to actually work(it never does), I'm a little paranoid that I would have to start from scratch if there were any problems with SP2.

    Anyway, thanx a bunch for your input :D

    to mismis29 buy goback i belive norton owens it

    its perty damn easy to use lol

    about the only thing you have to read up on is how to make a goback date return set point

    basicly like system restore for windows in that you set a specfic date to go back to

    but other then that goback usealy gives you a 2 to 3 day pariod automaticly meaning you screw up now you can go back 2 to 3 days you installed goback
