Its popularity stood the test of theintroduction of Windows Vista in early 2007, as it was consideredmore user friendly and had a higher level of developmentcompatibility than its successor.

All basic updates included in SP1 were rolledinto SP2’s release, giving comprehensive protection against a rangeof viruses and other security threats.
A new Security Center dashboard, was one of the flagshipchanges. The facility launched itself automatically to warn ofweaknesses in the system (i.e. firewall, anti virus or automaticupdating being restricted or turned off). This gave more controlfor the user and allowed greater management of these criticalfeatures. In a related move, Windows Firewall was automaticallyturned on as its default setting.
Internet Explorer was given added security, for the first timeintroducing a function that stopped pop-ups and drive-by downloads.In addition to the security-focused alterations, SP2 introduced anumber of multimedia updates – including the Windows Media Player9.
All the above is pretty good stuff – but there were majorcompatibility issues with existing software on SP2’s release. Also,the Internet Explorer updates conflicted with websites usingcertain scripts (such as Active X controls). There were alsoquestions as to why features such as Trojan scanning and anti-viruswere not included.
Pro’s: better security interface through new Security Center;improved Windows Firewall configuration; added Internet Explorerprotection and better multimedia software
Con’s: compatibility issues across exisiting software and InternetExplorer; no comprehensive anti-virus or Trojan threatscanning.
