Becker just says exactly what he truly thinks. Some people cannot deal with it. Thanks...SWTT. You made my day.

Sorry, I just thought that the "thread" part of the threaded discussion was enough to establish the necessary context...

When I was all ticked off....I was going to reply to that in this manner:

"You might want to have that checked by a proctologist."

Please just take that as humor.

That was my obviously subtler sarcastic statement analogous to , "yeah I love you too", when SWTT revealed that she's come to expect insulting remarks from me (for whatever reason).

The problems with SP2 would not affect standalone home PC's.
It may affect computers running certain online games. (Listed at the bottom of the white paper).

SP2 may affect certain programs that they list, but only in reference to network connectivity.

So unless someone has a large home network, it would be safe to say that it would be ok to load it on a home PC....as you have already attested to, Heavens11.

I think that with all the vulnerabilities of 2K and XP, Microsoft may have overcompensated. And this has affected network connectivity in some ways with SP2. It's the fine line with network operability....you want to be able to share information.....but you also want to insure you only share it with designated targets.

SP2 works and people who are comfortable with their understanding of how software works and with their ability to modify its configuration shouldn't have much of a problem. But the bottom line is that Microsoft's desire to be present on every computer on the face of the world and an indiscriminating manner in which port-blocking is implemented would blow away network applications of those who are not so comfortable. My guess is 50% of AOL users will be quite disappointed when AIM ceases to function or they can no longer stream audio from music servers, etc.

Whether the move was necessary/justified is debatable. They are, after all, doing this in a desperate (good luck getting THEM to admit it) move to cover up the piles of security weaknesses that are introduced within their own software.

I just want to say thank you to everyone for the information. I think I now can feel safe to download SP2. I do not use AOL, and the friend of my nephew is no Sean or M by any stretch and they know what they are talking about here.

Thanks to every person who answered. I value every anwser.

I installed SP2 as soon as I bought my computer, but it did not block any ports because I set the firewall to ask before blocking any applications. Fuscia, when you install SP2 the firewall will ask you (and say that it is desirable) to have the firewall block 'dangerous' applications for you. I suggest that you set the option to 'ask before blocking' or something similar. That way you will be saved the trouble of going in the firewall configuration and changing the settings later.

Note that I am speaking from memory, and the actual dialog presented by Windows might be slightly different.

Thanks M. We are installing a new firewall very soon, the updated version. I have not downloaded the SP2 yet. So, now I feel much better about doing it.
