service pack 2 should be applied immediatly after the windows disk is done loading before anything else is loaded, the more things on your machine the more likely it will fail.

This saddens me greatly

You need to do the following:

1) RUN, DO NOT WALK to the nearest store and purchase a legal copy of XP. It doesn't matter if you think it costs too much, or you don't like the product activation or whatever. Stealing is stealing, no matter who you do it to or why. There are free alternatives to XP. They may not be as good, but they are free, and it isn't like you or your family are in danger of life or limb if you don't have XP.

2) Do not discuss your use of pirated software here ever again. We do not support or condone software piracy. More to the point, we could be shut down if we allowed such discussion.

If you do not wish to do either of these things, that is your choice. However, if you choose not to do item 1, do not post here about your problems. If you choose not to do item 2, you will be banned.

Whatever difference in point of view on this we may have, we have this in common, we are put at risk by discussions or admissions concerning pirated software.

Do what I do, do without until that which we want can be honorably obtained.

Don't you think that someone in my position could get EVERYTHING they want in terms of computers if they were willing to give suppliers YOU, our members, in return?

At some point the line is drawn...or it doesn't get drawn and we drift toward the unspeakable... Your life, your choice. You pay either way. Either way you pay.

Wouldn't you rather be able to stand before us and declare your self honest without hesitation? You can you know. But it costs, every day, to be able to do so. Honesty is the highest rent district in the human heart, nothing will cost you more than to be yourself... unaided by unworthy deeds.

The man who would be honest, must give up what the desires cling to in order to ascend with the aspirations of a compassionate spirit.

There is ALWAYS so much more at stake than the single issue before us.

If two atoms cannot meet without consequence, should we then not be careful in the smallest thing we do to remain upright and of service to the welfare of this world?

Save yourself! Don't just drift away into the boundless, unable any longer to restrain yourself in the face of the smallest temptation...
