    I made a big mistake by updating to XP SP2.
    Is there a way to go back to SP1...

    You can go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall SP2. I would then go to system restore and restore to a point before you installed SP2. There should be a point named SP2 install or something like this.

    There might be small problem you will be able to revert but once you have removed SP2 there might be a few error on your system. And at time SP1 will be gone and if you try to install it will go one.This is out of personal experience you can try it out if you want to.
