    A number of folks I have spoken with lately have numerous SP2 entries after hot fixes and they are not showing SP2 as one entry. One person told me they were refusing the SP2 and their SP1 hot fixes changed to SP2.

    Is MS updating old hot fixes if the SP2 is not being downloaded? I have seen this several times and have no answer for why this is occurring. Thanks.

    For many months now all the Hotfixes have (SP2) after them, the KB....... ones, I think. Someone here told me that after they finished SP1, all subsequent patches were designated as (SP2). Nothing to do with whether or not you installed SP2. As far as I can see, as soon as you install the official SP2, that will be the only listing in Add/Remove Programs. The individual Hotfixes seem to be no longer available for deletion. Thay are still there, but the user can no longer access them.
