After I downloaded SP2 from windows update site my 1000mhz Athlon went into cardiac arrest. I found some info that had me boot up in Safe Mode after first making some changes in CMOS. After that I was able to uninstall SP2.
Has anybody encountered this ?

With SP-2 you have to make absolutely sure there is no spyware of any kind before installing. Windows download has a special prep hotfix for this that should be used prior to installling SP2 for running machines (not fresh installs)
