Windows XP Service Pack 2 released

August 13, 2004 :: John Mulhern, ISC Technology Support Services

Windows XP Service Pack 2 (officially named "Windows XP Service Pack 2 with Advanced Security Technologies") was released on August 9th, 2004. Service Pack 2 is the latest and most significant update to Microsoft's leading operating system.

Information Systems & Computing (ISC) will support Windows XP Service Pack 2 for its clients, including off-campus students, only on new PCs that ship with Windows XP Service Pack 2 pre-installed or that have been automatically updated through Windows Update. ISC strongly recommends that all other users adopt a "wait and see" attitude, continuing to use previous versions of Windows XP until after the initial bugs in Service Pack 2 are identified and fixed.
