    it shouldn't mess up anything unless you have a problem while isntalling (which isn't likely).

    more info about sp2 in the everythig guide: http://tvg.pinecurtain.net/index.php?article=sp2

    That is a list of programs that seem to behave differently after SP2. To be safe, a back up is good. Also get atleast the newest version of your network driver to be safe in case you need to update all sorts of components.

    Well I can only speak from my own experience . But have installed on over 10 computers ( friends and work mates ) Never seen a problem yet. If you have sp1 already installed no problem with bad keys. But yes BACK UP .
