"Works well on my new system but not on my old one"2.5 starson by microgoomba
Pros: Pop-up blocker for IE, improved firewall, automatic updates, Windows Media Player 9 , works well on my new system
Cons: Large file, buggy, BSoD infested, doesn't work well on my old system
Summary: I downloaded Windows XP SP2 for fixing security holes, but its still mediocre. My old system: Emachines C2160 with Windows XP Home Edition(deceased) did crash frequently while starting up or on the computer and the BSoD (Blue Screen of Death) appears while on this old piece of junk. This update on my old PC is a memory hog and consumes memory and hard drive space. My new system have Windows XP Professional with SP2 and I never seen a crash on my new system and it works better. If you have an unreliable PC and you install XP SP2, you'll see many errors and blue screens, I recommend a custom-build PC or a Dell.
