I have this problem with sp2 , yesterday i formatted and used a sp2 dvd with 50 extra programms that i "found", everything was fine it installed
properly , same goes with the programms.
Note that it is only sp2 with updates till august ,I was playing around and clicked on a gif I had , ie opened immediatly and tried to connect to some
site , in the taskmanager was a prog named little_helper2.exe, some kind of trojan , I cleaned my system of this bug.
Now my question : it does seem as if sp2 isnt that safe because I had clicked on that gif before I formatted ( I had only sp1 with all updates right
up to sp2 --but no sp2) and nothing like this happened, so is it possible to install sp1 now that sp2 is already installed ?
What happend to me was probably the gif problem that xp used to have where clicking on a jpeg could cause a trojan to be executed, I was under the
impression that that was fixed or am i wrong there ?
So do i need to install sp1 with all updates ? and is this even possible now ?
