On 18/08/04 Auto download said SP2 was ready to download. I clicked on 'download' then nothing seems to have happened, then or since. There are a number of SP2 Hotfixes in the 'Add or Remove list' but nothing to say it has been downloaded. Do I have SP2 or not. How can I tell.

Right click on My Computer, in the general tab it will tell you.

In control Panel click System and at the top of the general tab it will tell you.[It should XP Service Pack 2 if it's installed].

When I installed SP2 it removed reference to all previous fixes in "add or remove". Now there is just one entry that says Windows Xp SP2.

I downloaded SP2 from MSN Update and I checked the General Tab in System and it says SP1.
I looked in add/remove and it has a list of SP2 fixes in it. Whats going on-any ideas?

Where do I get it ? I have been on Microsoft update page, it tells me it's searching for updates then says there are none - I have Windows XP - Pro with SP-1 installed.

I think SP2 will only download when there is idle bandwidth available if you use auto-update. Therefore it may take sometime if you have a slow connection to complete.

SP2 is only available at this stage trough automatic updates not manual ones. Regardless of that fact your OS is windows pro and SP2 is not being released for that until 25/8/04.
