I just installed SP2 for Windows XP Home and now printing
seems to take at least 10 times longer. Is there a way
to change that?

What make and model of printer are you printing to and how is it connected
to the PC (LPT, USB, other)?

I have the same problem. I have installed SP2 in XP pro - The printer (HP
LaserJet 1300) I am using is connected to another computer in the network.
The system connected to printer is using Windows ME Operating System. Is
there any solution ?

Did you run DiskCleanup and Defrag after installing SP2?

I have also had a very specific problem with printing on a network which I
haven't been able to solve, though I have more info on the exact setup that
seems to cause a problem:
(1) Printing to a remote computer with shared printer - ONLY computers
running Windows 98 have problem.
(2) Windows XP with SP2 on workstation doing printing (SP1 no problem)
(3) Excel (2003 and 2000) - only tested on two PC's so may be all versions
cause problem

The printer seems to work, but Excel seems to run very slowly afterwards. I
am wondering if this is something to do with the print job notification -
incompatability with Win 98 perhaps ??

Note problem only affects Excel - Word has no problem. A Win XP shared
printer similarly has no problem, but possibly Excel runs tad slower but very
difficult to tell.

Sorry no answer as yet.
