My Media PC said updates are avaliable to install, clicked and it is installing a huge Service Pack 2 for Vista, the PC found the update overnight, don't know if MS are staging deployment.....

This PC took days to setup. It is linked to the kitchen and has a touchscreen, loads of codacs, streams to loads of things round the house..

I am kinda shatting myself if it fails..

Currently auto rebooted and at stage 1 of 3 62% complete stage one....

I've had SP2 installed for ages?

I am just havingf a little google.. You may be right

I have windows update tell me, and not auto install (This because if the machine reboots (overnight) and if the kitchen touchscreen is switched off, the touchscreen driver fails and uninstalls), maybe it has been around for a while then,,, :thinking:

SP2 came out in May ?!

I only got it last night too, and my pc is set to update automatically. I guess MS have staggered the release.

Hopefully any problems with it have been sorted out already then... lol

just had a look and im still on SP1 you may be right there mate with the steady release

tried to search for updates all i got was some lame secruity update for ie8, which i dont even use

what does sp2 actually do?


anything juicy?

It is mostly a roll up of all the previous Windows patches and fixes.

However some other Microsoft product, fixes, patches wont install unless you have SP2 on, so I would say go for it.
