If no spyware issue,

why is it needed to set up the SP2 on Windows XP Home Edition as a result of the impossibility of finding server for the Internet through Road Runner?

Hi

I understand your point about the SP2 for Windows Home Edition. The computer running perfectly and no issues at all so why need SP2?  However please be reminded that Microsoft released SP2 to better defend the computer from viruses, worms, and intruders. SP2 will improve the security configuration options of Windows XP.

There are ways to download SP2. I understand about your internet connection but you can download the SP2 on another computer and save it to a flash drive and install it on your computer. The file size of the SP2 is only 266MB so it can fit on a USB stick. Worms and viruses don’t come from the internet alone. It could come from a removable device as well. It would be best to secure the computer rather than repairing it if it will have a virus or a worm.

Hope you will find this helpful.

Cheers

Hello Dear,

 The previous solution is perfect. Here I want to talk about the making usb flash drive as a bootable one.

At the opening of command prompt, C: is visible with document directory. To avoid it, go to start> All Programs> Accessories> System tools> Command prompt. Open it as an administrator.

1. Open command prompt from run by typing ‘cmd’ and press enter.

2. At the opening of command prompt, C: is visible with document directory. To avoid it, go to start>All Programs>Accessories>System tools>Command prompt.

3. Open it as an administrator.

4. Type ‘c:>diskpart’ and press enter

5. Connect pen drive to USB port

6. Type ‘listdisk’, press enter

7. Write ‘select disk 2’, press enter

8. Write the following commands and press enter after each typing:

a. Create partition primary

b. Select partition1

c. Active

d. Format fs=ntfs quick

After some time, run assign command. Now exit

Now, insert your windows disk in CD/DVD rom

Copy the windows XP contents to your pen drive.

Hope, this time the same problem will not bother you
