Microsoft extends SP2 Blocking via AU/WU (again)

While SP2 for Windows XP is a great update, it can cause issues. To enable users, particularly larger larger corporate customers, to get ready, Microsoft has again extended blocking of the update via Automatic Update and Windows Update.

AU and WU will now continue to honour the blocking mechanism that prevents the offering of Windows XP SP2 until Tuesday 12 April 2005.

Accoring to Microsoft, "beginning on Tuesday 12 April 2005 AU and WU will deliver SP2 regardless of the presence of the blocking mechanism. Note that this is also the scheduled day for a monthly cumulative security update".
