      I loaded SP2, no problems so far. Luckily I had cleared out that plague of spyware first. When I got on this morning, Spysweeper informed me that like 40 different websites were eager to be included on my IE favorites list. WTF? Is this what SP2 will do for us? Is this what Digger meant about DSO exploits in the IE registry? (And why can't these people speak English?) It makes me feel like I've been sold out. I am trying to not take it personally, but sheesh.....

          Hello Beth:

          I think that Spy Sweeper is giving you a warning and also asking you a question at the same time. I know that you are looking for English and instead you are getting "geek speak". If it does not look right, do not add the 40 different web sites to your Internet Explorer favorite list. I do not believe that Service Pack Two is causing these problems. I think this problem started with Kazaa along with the file sharing and downloading of pornography by your (typical) sons.

          You can try to update the Spy Sweeper "Definitions" and then run the program again. I also like Boosters suggestion about using Window Washer to clean out your Internet cache files along with your cookies.

          Run Spybot, download Adware, and this: http://www.webroot.com/wb/products/w...sher/index.php which has a free trial. Multiple ways of "cleaning" is the only way to go to prevent malware.
          I don't think you need to worry about DSO exploits.

          Your computer has been through the "Dark Side" of the Internet and you may want to an online VirusScan.

            The XP SP2 Deployment Saga Continues
            By Mary Jo Foley

            Hardware and software vendors, including Microsoft itself, are continuing to issue warnings and guidelines in an attempt to help users avoid Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) deployment problems. The latest? Microsoft is advising customers to do a system spyware scan before attempting to upgrade to SP2.

              Push Is Coming to Shove for XP SP2 Deployment
              By John Pallatto
              April 6, 2005

              Affecting all the XP users who have been avoiding or procrastinating about installing the Windows XP Service Pack 2 upgrade, Microsoft is about to make the decision for them.

              On April 12, Microsoft Corp. is scheduled to turn on its Automatic Update service, which will deploy the XP Service Pack 2 to all PCs connected to the Internet regardless of whether corporate IT departments or individual PC users have prepared for it.

              SP2, developed to fix critical security holes and deploy performance enhancements, was originally released in September 2004. But in response to customer complaints, Microsoft suspended the automatic deployment for eight months to give users time to prepare for the upgrade.
