No problems with my system. What I would like to know; is it necessary for a
system running on xp home sp2 to have ad-aware se personal installed or other
anti-spyware software, (is sp2 enough considering sp2 is more a security
update)? Are there any foreseeable incompatibilities? Any other possible
issues? What anti-spyware softwares work best with sp2?
