XP2 UPGRADE WHAT


M

Michael W

Hi, Can you answer this please and advise.
I have been reading the newsgroups for all the things I can find about
Service pack two and seeing as I have a slow connection I decided to send
for the upgrade disk.
I received the Free Windows XP Service Pack 2 today and thought right we
will give it a go, I booted the computer and inserted the CD only to get the
message "Autorun experienced a problem" and stopped.
Shot in the foot before I even start, any ideas guys??.
Below is a read out of my set up extracted from Aida 32

That doesn't work either I'm afraid, all it does is open the disk to show
the contents.

The only way I could get the CD to start as it should was in Safe Mode.
However I opened the Cd and clicked the file XPSP2.exe.
"IT HAS INSTALLED SP2" and all seems to be working ok up to now.
One thing I noticed:- Drive C: before installation 3,797,763 KB
Now Drive C: 6,696,779 KB Quite an increase, there must be some files that
can be cleaned up from the installation??
