The DLink wireless app chose not to run with SP2...I ended up having to de-install and use the Wireless Zero Configuration in Windows to get it to work again....not a biggie, just a PITA losing wireless until I could figure it out....

as far as the firewall changes...I turned them off for now. I use Zonealarm but will prolly experiment with the new firewalling in SP2 shortly.

When I updated from sp2 beta to sp2 official release, it stopped blocking pop-ups. The pop-up blocker is turned on and set to block all pop-ups (nothing in my allowed list), but it doesn't stop a single pop-up. Image

a few months ago i messed with sp2 rc1 and found some problems with it. with the current sp2 i didnt see those problems or any for that matter, pretty much just your regular service pack only it added an annoying shield i did away with.
