    When I read the link you posted I thought that this was a good thing. I
    can't count how many people I know whose computers have been infected with
    bots and worms. Sounds like sp2 is a step in the right direction for them.

    If you have a firewall running already when you install SR2, you may be
    able to avoid this. Even with a Firewall enabled, SR@ installed ICS and
    ICF. I had to got into the Service tab on msconfig, and disable Internet
    Connection Sharing which also disables the MS Internet Connection
    Firewall. Once I rebooted, my Wingate firewall and DHCP server worked fine.

  8. I have installed SP2 as many others I know of without any problem. Of course there
    will always be cases of incompatibility and you should always make a full backup of
    your operating system [Ghost images are good and fast] before installing a service
    pack and you are strongly advised to at the time of the install.

    There are many significant improvements in SP2, many of which will make it easier for
    enterprise users to lockdown/secure their domain computers for Internet Explorer
    settings and firewall configuration via Group Policy [hundreds on new settings for
    Group Policy] . The KB references that the new SP2 will enable the built in ICF
    firewall which can interfere with some network applications. If you disable the ICF
    firewall then the application should work. Arguably there may be limited value of
    having the ICF firewall enabled on the lan when you have a firewall at the perimeter
    already. --- Steve

    I love your info about the fallacies of gun control and how the anti gun zealots have
    educated the criminal element to use more sophisticated weaponry! A few years back
    here in Illinois the mayor of Chicago and future governor were calling for a ban of
    the .50 caliber in Chicago. And why? Because a person could go to the top floor of
    one of the skyscrapers and pick off people in the area sports stadiums with one of
    course. Chicago has Nazi Germany control laws where it is illegal to own a handgun
    unless you are a pal [major contributor] of the mayor and yet it has the highest
    murder and violent crime rate of any major US city. --- Steve

    More gun deaths means more votes for anti-gun politicians like Chicago
    Mayor Richard Daley.

    Most gun deaths in Chicago are caused by drug dealing gangs and
    Daley's police "seldom show up to stop drug-dealing youths".

    "To Vera Evans, mother of murder victim Jason Harvey, the problems
    appear intractable. Police seldom show up to stop drug-dealing youths
    who appear on her South Side street everynight, and the allure of big
    money from selling drugs is too great for many youth to resist the
    trade, she said." source: "Gang Wars Make Chicago the Big-City
    Murder Capital", Reuters news service, 08/26/2003

    in the center of a gun controversy during the 1980s when he was

    a teen-ager who intruded into his backyard."

    Sorry for the self-followup.

    Please replace the sentence:

    Most gun deaths in Chicago are caused by drug dealing gangs and
    Daley's police "seldom show up to stop drug-dealing youths".

    with

    Most gun *murders* in Chicago are caused by drug dealing gangs and
    Daley's police "seldom show up to stop drug-dealing youths".
