SP3 installed correctly
I finally decided that installation of Vista on my Inspiron 6000 is not cost
effective. However, it might last until 2014 even if I don't. I will be 84
by that time. However, my Dimension 4600 will go to desktop heaven sometime
next year; hence installation of SP3 on it is not likely.
So, I decided that I should install SP3 on the laptop.
The installation started at 1:30 PM and was done by 2:30 PM. I did
disconnect every device not needed for the upgrade (USB drive and HP
printer). I turned off the router and NOD32.
So far, everything seems to be running just as before.
