My SP2 experiences

  • Windows update reported a 78mb SP2 patch
  • Started the download. After about 20 mins of “preparing” (I guess saving off old stuff) it is downloading a 95Mb file. Good to see Windows can still count.
  • No wait, now it is backing up after starting the install
  • Rebooted, have Windows XP “Please wait…..” blue screen
  • That went away and now XP is booting in 800×600 it seems.
  • Now I have “Help protect my PC” screen and am turning on automatic updates (Which was on before, but I guess windows forgot)
  • Logged in, have a security center. My firewall is on, updates are on, no antivirus installed, so it is warning I might be at risk. Course I am writing this on my Mac. 🙂
  • I got asked to let a program for my Sony phone run. Course it was a DLL and didn’t say anything about my sony phone, but I’m a geek and I just knew.
  • I ran star wars galaxies and a security dialog opened BEHIND the game window. LOL. Oh it is saying it is blocking some features of _aunchPad (SWG uses LaunchPad) Hmm should I keep blocking or not? The firewall has prevented it from receiving connections from the net. That should be ok. I’ll tell it to ask me later.
  • Oh there is one for LaunchPad too. Ok you too, LaunchPad, remind me later.
  • Game patched ok
  • Game played ok
  • Mozilla ran ok
