You can not turn it off, SP2 is a much needed install.

How to install SP2 update

Download to a folder or use the SP2 CD, then do the following.

If using the update site do this before installing.



1) Run CW Shredder

This is not possible. Install the SP2, then you won't be nagged again.

there is a temporary patch you can install from the MS site to block SP2,
but next year April time, you will have no choice from what I have read.

Just search MS site for SP2 blocker

Hi

To avoid that Automatic Updates tries to install SP2 at all (up to
12. April 2005):

Toolkit to Temporarily Block Delivery of Windows XP SP2 to a PC
Through Automatic Updates and Windows Update
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyI...

Run the XPSP2BlockerTools.exe in the link above. It will extract
several files to the folder you specify.

Then run XPSP2Blocker.exe to activate the blockage (it will create
the registry value described in the link above).
