WIndows XP Service Pack 2 for Home

Should you install Windows XP Service Pack 2 at home? YES!

Why? Because it contains all of the latest security updates, has a new security structure for some key operating system components that will help to protect your computer for future exploits, and it implements a second generation firewall on your computer.

For the best odds of success follow these steps before installing the service pack:

1. Empty the Temporary Internet items folder and delete Cookies. To do this, right click on Internet Explorer and select properties. Click the Delete temporary files, then click to delete cookies.

3. Run Disk Cleanup and delete all temporary files. To run Disk Cleanup, right click on your C drive and select properties. Then click the disk cleanup button.

4. Empty the recycling bin.

5. Scan for Viruses and delete files from the virus quarantine

6. Remove any programs that you don't need on your computer. If you don't know what it is, it's probably spyware or adware.

7. Reboot

Now you are ready to install Windows XP Service Pack 2.
