Re: Installing SP3 via Automatic Updates
[Crossposted to Windows Update newsgroup]

Did you just enable Automatic Updates? Did you just reinstall WinXP and are
you running WinXP SP2?

Keep reading:

How to troubleshoot Windows Update, Microsoft Update, and Windows Server
Update Services installation issues:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906602

1. See the "Need more help? Tell us what problem you are having" section of
http://support.microsoft.com/ph/6527

2. You cannot install some updates or programs
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822798

3a. Check your WindowsUpdate.log (%windir%\WindowsUpdate.log) for errors
associated with the download/install.

=> How to read the WindowsUpdate.log file
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/902093

3b. Compare errors to those listed here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/blog...showentry=1122
and/or go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com > click on Help and Support
link in left pane > Solve problems on your own.

=> NB: If WindowsUpdate.log shows "Update is not allowed to download due to
regulation" errors, you'll just have to wait a while longer until the
servers aren't so busy. You may want to configure Automatic Updates to the
"Download but Notify" or "Notify Only" setting so you can keep better track
of the progress; see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306525

4. Windows Update-specific newsgroup:
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsof....windowsupdate

5. WinXP SP3 - Read all prerequisites for a successful installation
http://msmvps.com/blogs/harrywaldron...tallation.aspx

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"
