I downloaded SP2 for XP last night, but I chickened out at the last second & I havent installed it yet. I've heard from some people that it's a good thing, but I've heard from other people that it is the root of all evil.
Anyone care to share their experiences, or maybe try to talk me into/out of installing it?

I didn't do much for my computer (I already have firewall program), but my naive side told me that I needed it for my computer. Of course, then IE stopped working for me on numerous websites. Maybe this patch will fix it? I'm convinced that there's a connection between SP2 and IE no longer working on my computer.

I installed SP2 a couple of weeks ago. The worst thing I can say about it so far is it bugs me to switch to Automatic Updates. It really seems to have had very little, if any, negative impact on my system. I browse mostly with Mozilla, but haven't had any IE worries.
