Wow! :) what a bunch of whiners.

I'm glad SP3 will not force me to move to IE7 since it is still not compatible with the computer I'm using to write this on.

Thanks for the link.

I'm surprised it doesn't force SP3 as well ... phew!

Got the Automatic Update notification that SP3 is ready for me to download. I'm going to hold off until I can locate the redistributable package.

Edit:
Found a stand alone download here: http://www.softwarep...3-security.html

Still have not found a Microsoft site for this, which I'd prefer. It's 340MB!!!! :)

Wannabe1 posted the link to the MS site: http://www.microsoft...;displaylang=en
Digeratti posted the link to the ISO image on WTT: http://www.microsoft...;DisplayLang=en

Some observations:

SP3 EXE is about 340MB, ISO is 560MB.
Install took almost 25 minutes on my HP 1.8Ghz with 1GB memory.
Cleaned and optimized the registry.
I shut down everything I possibly could before starting the install.

I did see a message about checking Product key so I suspect this will not install on illegal copies of XP (Yeah!).
Took 12 minutes from start to update of first file. Lots of pre stuff.
Blue progress bar stuck at about 50% and didn't move until about 10 seconds before it was done.
One reboot, had two Command Prompt windows open for about 10 seconds then they closed.

So far all is well. Everything is running as before.

Will I be able to run the Recovery Console from my SP2 CD now that SP3 is installed?
I will not be able to do a Repair Install with my SP2 XP CD.
Did SP3 update the C:\I386 directory tree during install?

Anyone know if Autostreamer and/or Nlite will slipstream SP3 like they did SP2?
