SP2 again...

Updated my PC to Windows XP SP2 today. Kept getting the blue screen of death pointing to a software/hardware failure. I removed my Hauppauge WinTV Nova-T PCI card and still BSOD keeps haunting me. Damn it!

Finally using common sense, I removed all my USB & Firewire devices and plugged in a spare trillion year old PS2 mouse, defaulted my AMD processor to spec'ed clock speed, reboot to Safe Mode and started the installation. Finally after almost one hour its done.

Thank you God whoever you are.

I have yet to encounter a software that was crippled by the update. Most of the programs are video editing and encoding programs.
