1. Download & save the installer for WinXP SP3 to your desktop:
[Yes, you can skip SP2.]
2. Read & heed:
3. Logged in as Administrator, if necessary, double-click on the saved file
to install WinXP SP3. Follow all prompts, be patient, and then reboot
4. Do Resolution Method 2 here (trust me):
5. Go to Windows Update | Select CUSTOM and scan | Install any critical
security updates offered. Again, follow all prompts.
[I do NOT recommend installing IE7 via Windows Update.]
6. Make certain that Automatic Updates is enabled; cf.
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
| select "Windows
XP" then select "Windows XP Service Pack 3"
