    after installing SP2 the following non-internet connection related stuff
    1. programmes stopped running in compatability mode for 95, 98, me, 2000 etc.
    2. no other account on the machine (all with admin rights) will open
    3. the machine takes over 5mins to boot into my account
    4. the machine crawls and virtually every programme causes hangs and crashes;
    anyone experienced similar and got any suggestions, (i feel a complete
    switch to linux comming on!)
    thanks guys,

    If you think that Linux users have less problems, I suggest that you
    subscribe to a few Linux newsgroups and see for yourself..
