L3thal Title bars are ALWAYS left aligned on default Windows systems, if you have them centered you are doing it with 3. party program such as Windows Blinds.

And this is why I'm waiting for an official release. Remember, it was only supposed to go to Beta testers :p

However, it seems most of the problems occur to users who slipstreamed their copy. Perhaps there's something different that would cause these random bugs?

I haven't had any problems once I got my RAM situation sorted out. Solid as a rock. I do see 50% cpu usage when I r-click in Explorer, but once the menu is dismissed, it drops again.

Is it just me, or does SP2 not have WPA-TKIP support out of the box?

Or is it me?

I'm kind of afraid to install the SP2 that was released to the beta testers. I have it downloaded, and I think I will install it on my test machine first, just to be on the safe side.

Fixed the audigy 2, kind of

You cant install the software/drivers off the cd

You have to get the new driver (7/29) off creative.com

Then it will work, but you have no EAX controls or any of the addon software

Bummer

WPA works perfectly on my Centrino.

SP2 has been working flawlessly so far. I did slipstream it, but no problems so far.

Good to know that i am not the only one facing " possible " memory leak on right-clicking .....

well i am thinking does this have 2 do anything with nvidia drivers ? although i have the "nvidia display driver " service disabled and even nview disabled.

Could be.. I'm using nvidia drivers too and am also having the right click problem :crazy: .

Well, found my first bug with service pack 2.

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 398 Kbps about 0.4 Mbps (tested with 386 KB)

Download Speed is:: 49 KB/sec

Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/

Bottom Line:: 7 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 20.9 second(s)

Validation Link:: http://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=27ND6QIF7

To explain: I'm on comcast cable, which normally gets me around 3 mbps down. That translates into roughly a 300-350K download speed. Upon installing SP2, I've been diminshed to the speeds above. This speed test has been run twice with the same result. I'm also downloading a large set of files at about 100K/s with no fluctuation in speeds.

Tested our home network at it's fine on another XP Pro box with SP1 installed. No issues there and getting around 3 mbps down.

Can others run a speed test from www.testmy.net to see how speeds are?

I'm running an AMD 2500+ with an Nforce2 board and Nic drivers.

Might want to try different ethernet drivers or reinstall them, I'm doing fine with comcast/nforce2/sp2.

Your connection is: 3064 Kbps (about 3.1 Mbps)

You downloaded at: 374 KB/sec

Installed it on my cousin's PC today. It didn't have SP1, so that might have been a problem. Well, now when you click on icons on the desktop, it tends to highlight about 3 more. Weird...

I've only had one problem:

I cannot use the driver disc that came with my Intel 865Perl motherboard.. it gives me some errors so I am forced to navigate through the cd and launch the driver setups separately.

I have 0 problems with my set up and i just installed my new audigy 2 zs plat.

So i think you either 1. got an incorrect SP2 or you are having some other sort of problem.

Sp2 stable as can be here. NO issues at all.
