    Default "Automated Windows XP Service Pack 2 upgrade option"?

    On
    upgrading ZASS from 8.0.298.035 to 8.0.400.020, I noticed the following change listed in the Release History:
    "Automated Windows XP Service Pack 2 upgrade option".
    What does this mean?
    I run Windows XP SP2, and I want to keep it that way -- not upgrate to SP3.
    I don't see any new "optoins" offered in the setup or configuration... -- JClarkW

    NOTICE: No Security Software run on WinXP Sp2 can protect you from the Windows Security Flaws found in Windows SP2
    that were Fix with Windows SP3, until you upgrade to SP3...&lt;&lt;



    Dear GeorgeV -- Two follow-ups please:


    1) I HAVE installed all of Microsoft's INDIVIDUAL security fixes (except SP3 itself), following instructions from Lenovo.
    They are still saying that &quot;some of their drivers conflict with SP3&quot; and advising AGAINST installing it.
    I don't want conflicts with ZASS, however (haven't noticed any yet)!
    Am I relatively safe this way, or do I really need to install SP3 IN ADDITION TO the individual updates?


    2) I still don't know what Release History means by &quot;Automated Windows XP Service Pack 2 upgrade option&quot;.



    Thanks for your reply, and Best Regards. -- JClarkW

    The newest version of ZoneAlarm requires at least Service Pack 2 in order to install. That was added to automatically link customers to the Service Pack 2 download if they needed it to install the new version.
