From my reading, the most likely issue is that SP2 by default turns on the Windows XP fire wall. Some versions of Intuit are affected for some reason.

If you have a separate fire wall program (a very good idea), or even just a router, you probably have the Windows firewall turned off now. SP2 will turn it on; so you have to turn it off to avoid all kinds of conflicts that might arise between competing firewalls.
