Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3)
Posted 10 September 2008 - 06:39 PM
Well firstly, tell me this:
How are you trying to download SP3?

make sure your computer is clean of malware before you try installing SP3...
also create a restore point just prior to installing it...

Be aware that if SP3 is installed on a system with IE7, IE7 will be made a permanent part of the OS and will not be able to be un-installed from Add/Remove. To avoid this situation, un-install IE7 (it will automatically revert to IE6) before applying SP3. After a successful SP3 install, IE7 can be re-installed without complaint.
