I finally got around to upgrading to service pack 2. I have had it downloaded for a while, I tried to install it at school during the down time, but, and get this, "Service Pack 2 requires AC power" I couldn't install it because I was running of the battery, and I had a fullish charge - huh? So I installed it with AC power and what do I find? All those stupid shortcuts to Internet Explorer and Media Player are now EVERYWHERE again. So I am in the process of hunting them down and tossing them. Plus IE became my default browser again. I am glad my computer is safer and once again over run with microsoft crap!
