Format the PC and re-install Windows XP.
Turn OFF the auto-update function as this will update the machine to the latest service pack 3. Since you wish to install service pack 2.
You can go to Microsoft's website and update manually.

Support for XP and SP2 ended July 13, 2010.
You can still get it here.
For how long, this is up to MS.
After you patch up to SP2 you may wish to create a back up for later use.
Any number of applications out there will make an image and allow you to restore should you ever need too.

Good luck!
Hope this helps.

Hi, before you format your hard disk, make sure you have saved all important files that you like to keep on an external drive, for example a USB Stick. Formatting your hard disk will destroy all data.
If you want to format and reinstall Windows XP do the following:
Insert your Windows XP CD. Restart your computer. Your computer should then automatically start from the CD and show the Windows XP Setup.
In Windows Setup you can choose the partition on which you want to install Windows. There you can also format the partition, before installation. To do this, just follow the directions that are shown.

Need a key for windows xp service pack 2


The Microsoft "Service Pack 2" is just a collection of program-updates and security-fixes for either the "original" Windows XP, or for Windows XP with Service Pack 1 already applied.

As such, it does _NOT_ require any "key".

Note that it's probable that Service Pack 2 will _NOT_ install on a "bootleg" version of Windows XP (original or SP1), because the SP2 update includes the Microsoft "Windows Genuine Advantage" update.

I have windows xp and i attached usb2.0 with it but my pc not detecting my usb 2.0 but when i insert the usb in my laptop the green light is on of usb.what shoud i do


Hello there.

For Windows XP, support for USB2.0 is provided in the Windows XP Service Pack 2.

You most likely do not have this installed, to check do the following: right click "My computer" on the desktop, left click "Properties", Notice underneath where it says "System:"
It should say Microsoft Windows XP, Service Pack 2.

If yours does not, then you need to update to Service Pack 2 as soon as possible, as this includes many security fixes to keep you safe online.

Please click here to upgrade to service pack 2.
