I work for a company who is telling me to install sp2 on every computer that we are removing virus's and spyware on. Yes that should be done but I'm being told to do that first on infected systems with no exceptions. I personally think this is very bad and will just end in disaster. I have always been told to install sp2 on a clean system and have seen many times an sp2 install go really bad on an infected system. Ive searched google far an wide and I'm proven right time and time again. I may loose my job argueing this fact. I dont want to mess someones computer up by doing this. Can someone send me official word from M$ that this is not good or can EVERYONE give me your opinion
some of sp2 from what I understand is patches on certain wholes that viruses use, if that virus is on the system it could stop that patch from installing or working all together, or might not even be able to install sp2 and get errors.
what is the point of installing on an infected system, its gonna cost more money/time to do it that way.

now if the place you work at like to spend more money doing it the hard way then its not much of a place to work at if you ask me, unless ofcourse you need that job in which case you got to do what you got to do its their dime.
