After installing SP2, the IE6 does not work very well.
It always results in DNS error no matter which URL I enter.
After I reset the local area connection, it works again.

My installation of SP2 is done by downloading the SP2 and save it in a
folder.
The updated firewall and antivirus software is running at the time I
download the SP2.
I disconnected the internet connection at the time I install the SP2.

So, which parameters should I check to find the problem?
Thanx

Remove SP2 and download it in the normal manner with your anti-virus turned
off. It can easily cause a bad install.

If you want SP2 on a CD:

XP SP2 CD:

Run a Defrag after you're done.

Do I need to leave my NIS firewall on when I download the SP2?
If I turned off the anti-virus software and the worm or virus appear at that
time, does my PC still have protection?
Thanx

You don't have to turn off your firewall, but what worm are you talking
about? Have a look at Frank's reply.

Remove SP2 and then remove any spyware. After that turn off your anti-virus
before reinstalling SP2.

1. Uninstall SP2 via Add/Remove Programs and reboot.

2. Run a thorough check for hijackware, including posting your HijackThis
log to an appropriate forum.

Check for Hijackware

http://defendingyourmachine.blogspot.com/

When all else fails, HijackThis (http://aumha.net/downloads/hijackthis.zip)
is the preferred tool to use. It will help you to both identify and remove
any hijackware/spyware.

**Post your HijackThis log to http://forums.spywareinfo.com/,
http://castlecops.com/forum67.html, http://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30 or
other appropriate forum for expert analysis, not here.**

3. Do not install SP2 until an expert gives your HijackThis log a clean bill
of health.
