Service Pack 2

By Computer noob

  1. Well I've finally gotten the service pack 2 installation to work, and I have some questions before it is complete. I just want to know that after it is all installed and I restart, I'll still have everything and nothing will change except the features that come with service pack 2. Like will my desktop still be arranged the same exact way with all of my applications, or will everything be gone?

    The faster the answer the better, since installation is underway, and thanks in advance.

    on the contrary everything will change. all you Cd collection will be scratched, your hair will fall out, your entire MP3 collection will be converted to Barry manilow's greatest hits. and you'll have the heartbreak of psoriasis.

    Ok, so I was joking about the psoriasis.

    Unfortunately it failed. When it was almost done, a window popped up and said "access denied". So i had to cancel the installation. W/e, ive had service pack 1 for this long, might as well keep it i guess.

    were you logged in on an administrator account when you did the install?
