    WARNING! XP service pack 1...

    Hi everybody,

    Please be carefull installing Service Pack 1 for XP. It is known for crashing the system constantly (It\'s true... [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img] ) on some PC\'s.

    Also I couldn\'t start outlook without acrash/reboot. I uninstalled SP1 and had to re-install XP as i couldn\'t start after the un-install of SP1.

    Now it\'s back to normal...

    I thought that was just for the following systems:

    HP
    Compac

    ???

    Service pack has worked well for me (built up system from Zipr Technologies.)

    The XP Service Pack 1 is working well for me thus far. It solved some midi input problems I was having with Cubase SX.

    Scarbee. I got the same darn problem. Did you find a solution for it? Or do we just have to face the obvious threats of virusses and stuff?

    Hi Lewis:
    Unfortunately my system - and especially Outlook has been very unstable since I installed the service pack. [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img] I uninstalled it but it didn\'t help much on the stability so I re-installed SP1 again since it didn\'t matter anyway. I guess the only way is to make a clean re-install of everything and I don\'t want to do this right now. My main PC is working OK with the service pack: Cubase SX, Reason Giga.

    I hope there will be a fast update since it\'s Microsifts own programs that makes most problems around the world... [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Dear Scarbee. I got f..... by the same problem. But XP has a wonderfull feature. Just restore your PC to the day BEFORE you made the devasting error of installing the darn thing. So restore - and Outlook will be good again.

    Yours - Chris

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">On Sunday I tried 3 times to update to SP1. Twice from CD, once from Windows Update. Right before I did it, I backed up the drive using Symantec\'s Norton Ghost.

    After restoring my drive the third time, I gave up. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
