Yeh, and there are problems already!!!!!

For those of us on BB who will be downloading it tomorrow (with fingers crossed), is it worth doing a complete system clean up (using CCleaner, for instance) and defrag, etc, etc to ensure that our PCs are fighting fit before installing SP2 ?

Your thoughts on this would be welcome.

As well as cleanup, I intend to backup, better safe than sorry.

Yes, also a backup of important files is a good idea, if not essential before installing anything!

I've had SP2 for the last five days, and have found no problems at all.

SP2 has been available from MS since last week: Final.

Tomorrow it will appear on AU.
