Microsoft executives face questions on XP SP2

Executives from Microsoft's security group demonstrated some of the new security features planned for the next major Windows XP software update, known as Service Pack 2, and faced persistent questions Tuesday from customers about whether the new features will interfere with other security technology.

Rebecca Norlander, group manager for the SBTU, spoke with Nash and confirmed that a second test version of Service Pack 2, known as Release Candidate 2 (or RC2) will be released in May, and that the final version of XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) is still on schedule for the first half of the year. More release candidates are possible after the RC2 release, depending on customer feedback, Norlander said.

I am unable to download pictures from my fuji a210.

Before SP2 I had no problems. Is this a common sp2 issue?

How can I get the Autoplay function to load my pictures when I connect my camera to my laptop?

Thanks,

John Maloney
