Hey all....I have an interesting problem. I just reinstalled XP Professional today, and when I went onto Windows Update to try and get SP2 (or more likely SP1), all that came up were 15 Security Updates--nothing else. Anybody have any ideas as to why this is, or how I can get the Service Pack(s) and Critical Updates?

Thanks in advance for the help!!

SP2 is currently not available under windows update. The only way to get it is through automatic updates and to just manually download it such as you did.

-ABIT NF7-S (nForce2)
-Mobile Barton 2600+@2.3GHz
-Radeon 9800 Pro @ 420/380
-2x512MB Corsair XMS @ 2-2-2-11
-Audigy2 Platinum
