There will come a point one day when to install anything from Microsoft you'd need it. Office 2007, for example, as is the case with other Microsoft products, now will not install on a computer that doesn't have SP2.

2. IMHO, if you kept your Windows updates current, SP3 doesn't bring much more, than all those updates in one bunch.

The tweak I got from Systemax only involves one value in HKEY_LOCAL folder so I believe I'll go ahead with the process. (never know what suprises MS might have for us). However, erunt is not loading for me. Think I will nail down that problem first.
If you find someone else with an AMD based Systemax machine or maybe anyother AMD machine with
sp3 issues, you might direct them to the manufacturers support site. Systemax told me this was common.

I am your alter ego [man-made Pessimist!].
I have XP SP3 on my new PC. It came already installed by the tech guy who built it for me.
I couldn't tell you what the difference is between SP2 & 3. Nothing I've noticed in the last week anyway.
