    I just bought a new computer from Newegg and decided that after looking at the info seen here that Kaspersky Internet Security would be a reasonable option to put on my two computers at home. The installation went fairly well (only a couple glitches). Want to create a "rescue disk" but in addition to downloading "PEbuilder" (no problem there) it calls for access to the XP Service Pack 2 installation disk. The machine didn't come with a separate XP SP2 installation disk. How do I come up with a XP SP2 installation disk?

    The site you directed me to was for IT professionals and for downloading to multiple computers. Not recommended for a single computer which I am. For single computers it directed me to Windows Update and at that site it's not intuitive how to download XP SP2 by itself to an "installation disk". But I feel I'm getting closer! Thanks!!!

    SP2 is for winXP or Vista only, you can download from microsoft but they will can your comp to make sure you have a genuine winxp installed, if you have then download and you will not need any discs

    hope this is helpful
