of users are reporting successful SP1 installations - so for most
people the XP SP2 debacle is now ancient history. But a few people are

haven't seen any drastic performance improvements with it, and it'll
take a while to see any reliability or security improvements - but all
in all it seems to be a worthwhile update.

Some will boot into Safe Mode to remove some offending updates
