Is it worth downloading?

Will it cause any problems?

Just wondering!

It's only downloadable through Automatic Updates at the moment!

View THIS (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=9;t=012834) thread, and THIS (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=11;t=001243) thread.

I can't speak for anyone else, but for myself, I don't need to download and install SP2. It is primarily about instituting security measures for those who are either technically unaware, or simply too lazy to do so. As someone who is relatively 'on the ball' I think I've got my system set up in a reasonably secure manner. Neither do I want all the tweaking I've done to date, undone by SP2 (quite apart from the problems some people are having). I would say if you have a good secure setup, wait until they've ironed out the problems.

Thanks for the links!

I don't think I will bother about XP SP2 yet - it sounds very buggy and iffy!

But i KNOW many people are either technically unaware, or simply too lazy / uninterested to institute / maintain security measures on their pc... it's a sad fact. SP2 is meant for this bunch, i hope it helps. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-3.gif
