Microsoft offers disabled SP2 download
Microsoft Corp. is letting customers disable installation of SP2 until they are ready to deal with the multitude of issues it brings.
Users, largely expected to be corporates, can prevent the installation of the newly minted XP service pack while permitting the installation of all other automatic OS updates.
The idea behind it is that smaller organizations may find that the update process overwhelms their resources, whether download bandwidth, or technical staff who will have to manage the fall-out of a massive OS update dropping into most users' machines.
