SP2 Auto Upfate delayed (XP SP2)
Windows XP SP2 via Automatic Update Postponed
Microsoft has revised its plans to deliver Windows XP SP2 through the Automatic Updates (AU) delivery mechanism in Windows to give customers more time to plan the rollout of this critical update, or temporarily block the download of Windows XP SP2 to those machines using AU.
Here is the revised delivery schedule of Windows XP SP2:
8/16 - Release to Software Update Services.
8/18 - Release to Automatic Update for users running Windows XP Home Edition only.
8/25 - Release to Automatic Update for all Windows XP users including those running Windows XP Professional Edition; release to Windows Update for interactive user installations.
Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

Re: SP2 Auto Upfate delayed (XP SP2)
Not a big surprise when you consider that most XP Pro installations will be in businesses. I'd guess that many sites need the time to validate SP-2. Besides it gives MS yet another week to see if anything is really broken. From the 'news' articles I've seen so far the vast majority of 'problems' have been open firewall ports.
