  1. There are two main reasons why some people don’t upgrade to SP2:

    1. Company policy – if the PC is a company owned device, the user may not be able/allowed to install SP2, as the new firewall policy breaks some apps. As SP2 is fairly old, the number of users in this category should be small, but you never know how fast IT departments move.

    2. Serial number of the XP installation does not allow SP2..

    Finally, there could be a rare hardware issue..
