FYI: SP2 prevents some programs from running - how to fix

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by a nonny mouse, Aug 16, 2004.

  1. From the official MS website:
    SUMMARY
    After you install Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), some
    programs may seem not to work. By default, Windows Firewall is enabled
    and blocks unsolicited connections to your computer. This article
    discusses how to make an exception and enable a program to run by adding
    it to the list of exceptions. This procedure permits the program to work
    as it did before the service pack was installed.
