Windows XP SP1 – Updating Tips ‘n’ Tricks

Recommended Posts

Introduction

By now many of you would have discovered that Microsoft’s first Service Pack for Windows XP is among us, whether Microsoft like it or not. Recently a press release was issued by the software giant saying the Service Pack would be released on the 9th of September to end-users but as it happens, it was leaked before this date by beta testers and folks in the know – what a surprise.

As far as I have seen there is no official word available to us on what the Service Pack actually improves. Although judging from the past we can safely assume it will improve performance and stability, as well as included the latest security updates and new features such as Windows Media Player 9 which is included in Service Pack 1. On the other hand it will most likely also bring with it a whole bread of new problems…

Well, when I get a spare day or two I will do that. Nice to have things like this on cd.
