Its got nothing to do with viruses and spyware.
Im hearing more and more acounts of programs not working after SP2 install.
I had problems with "FL Studio" a sample sequencer and a friend of mine has
problems with "Clean" an audio converter.
Uninstall SP2 and they work OK again.
Microsoft look so professional with their jazzy websites etc. but they are
an amatuer outfit.
