sp3
I have 2 desktops and a laptop,after a 2 week break i switched them on.
The main desktop starts to auto update sp3 which i do not require but the
other 2 systems do not.
I have not selected to down load and install sp3 fron the windows update
site so why is it auto updating it on the main desktop but not on the others?

Re: sp3
Are all 3 machines running WinXP SP2?

Assuming Automatic Updates is enabled, how is it configured on all 3
machines (e.g., Notify Only; see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306525)?

If you go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com on the 2 other machines, is
WinXP SP3 offered?

Free unlimited installation and compatibility support is available for
Windows XP, but only for Service Pack 3 (SP3), until 14 Apr-09. Chat and
e-mail support is available only in the United States and Canada. Go to
http://support.microsoft.com/oas/def...spx?gprid=1173 | select "Windows
XP" then select "Windows XP Service Pack 3"
