Every operating system will evolve over time and these systems need to be kept up to date. Not only is this important if you hope to enjoy superior processing speeds but there can be other instances when vulnerabilities are identified and security becomes an issue. This Windows XP Service Pack has been released to address such problems before they become detrimental to the system itself.

Main Functions and Benefit

It is said that one of the primary intentions of this Windows XP Service Pack is to provide protection against emerging third-party threats. These include viruses spyware malware worms and hackers. Without this level of protection personal files could become compromised and even an entire system might suffer a crash. This pack will automatically install itself after the initial download. Once the computer is restarted the changes can immediately take effect.

Other Protective Applications

This Windows XP Service Pack also provides other benefits to be appreciated. An enhanced firewall system will help to detect a number of threats not previously addressed. It also incorporates an advanced security centre that can be modified by the user and a handy pop-up blocker will prevent unwanted nuisances while navigating the Internet.

Microsoft released several updates to Windows XP. These updates contain all the fixes and enhancements which have been made available in the previous years. The updates (called Service Packs) provide convenient, all-in-one access to the most up-to-date drivers, tools, security updates, patches, and customer-requested product changes.

This Service Pack for Windows XP—Service Pack 2 (SP2)—is all about security, and it’s one of the most important service packs ever released. It provides better protection against viruses, hackers, and worms, and includes Windows Firewall, Pop-up Blocker for Internet Explorer, and the more recent Windows Security Center.
