IE6 SP2 popup blocker and add-ons

IE6SP2I just installed Internet Explorer Service Pack 2 which includes popup blocking and a new feature called Add-ons management.

I dont really care about poup blocking since I'm using Mozilla as my default browser. And in IE I already had installed the Google Toolbar which also featured popup blocking. But it's now integrated into IE. The dialog for popup blocking can be seen here.

Web browser add-ons are items you can add to your IE browser to make browsing a little more fun or effective. Common add-ons include extra toolbars, animated mouse pointers, stock tickers, and pop-up ad blockers. The dialog for Add-ons management can be seen here.

From the Add-ons management dialog you can also update the installed Add-ons. You click the Update button and are then informed if there's an update available. If there is you're presented with this dialog.

See all of the pictures. Click on the images to see the larger version.

Where did you find SP2? I tried Windows Update but couln't find it.

Is the update just for XP or is it for all
Windows versions?

I found the SP2 on a Windows news site. It had a link to an official Microsoft download server where I downloaded the file. I kind of thought that it was the official SP2, which it turn out that it wasn't.

So you have to wait a little bit before getting the SP2

My bad. Still, you have to admit, that post with all the links was cool. []
