This question pertains to my system using Windows Vista home premium.

Tried to download service pack 2 today and it would only reach 12% of download and then quit. So I went to the windows site and downloaded the system readiness tool (took over 2 hours to download on my system). Tried to download service pack 2 once again and it still won't download. also... during the downloads I turned off my Norton Internet Security thinking that may of been the issue, but still it will not download.

I am also using these programs on this computer in case of any issues:
Spyware Blaster

Would one of these programs be causing the problem with trying to update to service pack 2? If so... will I need to remove any to do the update?

Thank You in advance for all answers and if I could be of more assistance please ask.

You don't have to remove those programs-just temporarily disable them as you did with NIS. What type of Internet connection are you using when you download ?

I just got the "stand alone" version yesterday from the M$ website. It's about 350MB. I created a folder & downloaded the SP2 file, then installed it from there. Now I have a copy for future installs or possibly slipstreaming to my Vista disc.

Remember that the SP@ is only a BETA version! I d/l and all worked fine until a major crash related to that update. Wait till they get the bugs out.

oldsmar103: Why do you say that it's a beta version ? Of course, it still might be better to wait till they get the bugs out.
