Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 2b for PC
Is there a fairly small download file for Service Pack 2 for Windows XP? Some of the ones I have been finding have been 36hr. long download times and I have a wireless Network connection. Also, the operating system is XP Home edition.
First of all perform a speed check on your internet speed. I recommend speedtest.net for that.
If your speed is less than 2mbps then the file could take a while to download.
Try clicking on the links that i will provide bellow, use them one at a time and see if the download estimation changes.
Good luck and regards.

Testimonial: "thanx for the links. They are still 3&4 hour downloads but for damn sure better than 36hrs. thank you again for your time."
The only 'small' downloads you'll find for the XP service packs are going to be through the Windows Update feature/website. That's only because the windows update downloads a small bit and then after scanning your system for a while downloads only what is needed to update your system specifically... but believe me, that still takes a long time.
The latest service pack is:
XP Service Pack 3, available through the Microsoft Download site
Be warned, the download available though the above link(Microsoft Download site) is over 300MB.
Perhaps you could go to a local library or other public spot and download it quicker, or get someone you know to download it and put it on a flash drive or CD.
I hope that works out OK for you.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
