What is Windows XP SP2?

Windows XP SP2 will include many security and performance enhancements developed since the October, 2001 release of Windows XP. In

addition, Windows XP SP2 will contain new "security technologies" specifically designed to help you protect your computer from

malicious attacks, including port-based and e-mail attacks, malicious Web content and buffer overrun based attacks.

Other planned changes for Service Pack 2 include:

  • An enhanced personal firewall with improved features designed to better secure your personal computer.

  • Security Enhancements to Internet Explorer and Outlook Express

  • Support for new processor technology to further protect your machine from potential exploits.

  • Improved Windows Update support designed to make it easier than ever to help keep your system secure and up to date.
