    I installed SP2 through automatic updates.. but then my
    computer started acting weird.. USB modem keeps getting
    disconnected every few minutes, sometimes it completely
    refuses to detect the modem .. also, the computer keeps
    freezing few minutes after startup... I'm not sure this
    is because of SP2, but that's all I could think of..
    Please help!
    Thanks

    go to start then control panel then admin tools and then
    services and try disableing the dcom services. Mine had
    the problem of freezing and or very slow at startup and I
    disabled the DCOM and that fixed it. I have not had time
    to find out why this DCOM is causing the problem but
    suspect it is a driver that loads at startup that uses
    DCOM.
