windows XP SP2 - useful?

so now that SP2 is out and installed on the PC's of most of the people... i just want to ask one question...... did you ppl find the security centre feature useful?

i turned it off right away.. or tried to.. it kept on giving me turn it back on notification for a long time...... finally took me two days to figure out how to turn it off..

i presonally saw no use for the antivirus and firewall (which by the way is not all the great)... i have got norton for that and as far as the pop-up blocker is concerend..... there are many others out there.... ok google has got privacy problems.... but there are some free ones there as well.....

just cant figure out the need for making such a move by MS..... most of the people who are already on the net have got soem sort of pop-up blocker and anti-virus... and even firewalls.. then wat was the compulsion for this?

I agree, I feel that it was pointless wen I installed it, cos 1 i dont need anti virus and firewall (already have em) and there are so many problems with it for example, after I installed it I got a load of running script errors on email and on help files which I found quite confusing cos Ive never had that problem before. and I had a few problems where my comp unexpectedly restarted. I found that a few programs i had were incompatible with sp2 which was a ballache. I wouldnt really recommend installin it because it aint really worth it lol
well theres my view!

WinXP SP2 100% Hate!

I hate WinXP SP2 because I have lots of protection software alreday , it disturbs your computing activties plus lots of software are not compatible with it!

Its best to remove it and this time update on minor fixes in Win XP , don't bother about stupid server packs!

In the underground, WinXP alone is termed a "virus" ... tells you something? Get the **** rid.

I aren't saying install Linux - that's worse.

Trew enough. Also depends on your ability/experience working with Linux. It's not exactly for "first-timers" ... or more to say, home users shouldn't use it if they dunno what to do with it.

True !

Its true about the ability/experience on Win XP SP2 without it then it would lead to future problems . If you want your computer safe then I say Norton Internet Security 2004 and Systemworks 2005 will fit the whole thing!

i found that norton security always seem to miss certain things that say for example avg, f-secure and mcafee would get rid of

Like...

I don't really like to use that security center myself. But I do like to use Norton and ZoneAlarm. Their both really good. It's up to you wether you use security.

I think it is quite useless. It is not providing any kind of security and moreover it is creating obstacles in daily work by giving pointless massages.
