i recently installed SP2 on my laptop that was running a LEGIT version of Windows XP with SP1. after that I couldn't browse. every page would just come up as Page Can Not Be Displayed or one of those errors. tried to simply ping those sites, failed. i turned off all my firewalls, no effect. ive given up on it for now cause its so frustrating, so right now i'm System Restoring. hopefully things go back to normal. altho, if you guys have any idea whats going on or even how to fix it, please do share... id like to try SP2 again...someday...thanks!!!
