    Officially, Microsoft is ending their support for SP1, on the 10th of October. Which still gives you the chance to download all the post SP1 updates.

    One way to get the downloads, is to have MS Update download, but not install the updates...then go to the folder they are kept in, and copy/save them to another folder..or MU will delete them after installing.

    Hey zippyDSM;

    the modification in XP from 98 pretty much takes care of the stall problem after extended "ON" time, but with the SP 1 & 2 you recieve better security measures, and the "Run As 95" option, that I thought were pretty nice. this being that I too have some older proggies that don't like XP. Plus better "ON" time retention.

    But, it was hard for me to make the change, not going to say it's for everyone. Happy Hunting.

    I hear yah! I have updated my older computer with new components, didn't have many problems until my son added another stick of ram. "Message came up....you have made too many changes". He had to phone Microsoft, was told if unable to validate online, I would need a new license, REPAY of course! NO WAY, it was only activated ONCE and was a legitimate purchase. My son was relaying all of this over the cellphone while we were on holidays LOL. TG, he was able to validate it. Microsoft would have gotten a piece of my mind! One is treated like a criminal even when you're not!
