XP SP2 RC2


I have just completed installation of Windows XP SP2 RC2. 


I upgraded from RC1 very smoothly via the Windows Update Site.  If you have RC1 installed and you go to the Windows update site and do a scan it will pick up that RC2 is available.  Once downloaded it went pretty quick.  A reboot at the end ... and i am up and running on RC2.  It seems like a very solid build and so far i would recommend it to anyone.  Some have commented that i should have uninstalled RC1 first ... but that was after i had done it... and it seems i didnt need to anyway.

    I downloaded RC2 and attempted to install it. It took great pleasure in informing me that it couldn;t upgrade and that I had to uninstall RC1 first. I’ve tried to find where to uninstall RC1 but to no avail. I tried all the usual places… Add/Remove Programs, no… maybe somewhere in the Start Menu… no… running out of places to look…

    Can you help?
