    yes, but some of us have problems getting SP1/SP2 on machines...yes, even legal copies of windows we own. I've had a devil of a time trying to get SP2 on my sisters HP laptop. The whole thing just freeks out and freezes. Mind you, it's so spyware infested (even after clean up) that it needs a good reformatting but she's not brave enough to let me do it. It doesn't help that she still has dialup so getting it via automatic update isn't really going to happen.

    Fortunately, for use poor souls cursed with Dialup connections, Microsoft has SP2 on a CD that can be ordered here...

    Order Windows XP Service Pack 2 on CD
