SP 1 ?!?! ONE !?!?
Dude! SP 2 just got out, what were you waiting for?!?! (j/k)
Seriously, people underestimate the necessity of the updates that microsoft provides. Don't you know there's tons of kiddy-evil-geniuses that do
nothing else but peek and try to find holes in microsofts products? That's why security updates should always be applied as soon as they're
avalaible. There's been test done to show that a windows XP pc, installed right-of-the-box style (no updates, patches or configuration changes) would
last approximatly 20 to 30 minutes on the Net before being hitted by some virus or other malware searching for vulnerabilities.
Still, I'm glad you solved your problem.
