Per your instructions will not leave any comment re: getting a Mac. However, will note that .Mac has a nifty deal where for a hundred bucks a year you get 250 mg of file backup on Mac's big computer plus Virex, email, music, photo albums, etc.

Ah, another Mac lover. It wasn't even me that said "---- - ---". We are really feeling badly that you have such troubles. You got us started on Macs. Now we own 2 iPods and their various accessories.

Just reading what you put here. I'm actually a member of the Geek Squad myself in Minnesota. Through my experience, what I have found that it is not necessarily SP2 that is the problem. A lot of the time, if there are some residual viruses or spyware on the system interferring with system files, it doesn't give the patch a good foundation to build itself upon. SP2 is a very large update, changing some of the foundations of WinXP iself. Now that you've reimaged the system it is a higly likely chance that if you were to install SP2 again (perhaps from a CD if you would be able to require it rather than from Windows Update) you will not encouter any problems. On average it is a 1 in 10 chance that there is an issue and very rarely do I have issues putting it on a repaired system.

Just have to let you know.
