Re: sp3
If you are using the Win Update to install SP3, that is NOT the safest
way.

The better ways are:

#1 - Download the SP3 Installer ISO and write to a CD. This gives you a
Autorun CD that installs SP3

#2 - Download and SAVE the SP3 installer EXE, then run it from your hard
drive

See my Blog on this issue for more advice

Horse hockey! It's completely safe to install WinXP SP3 via Windows Update!
