Yes, I did a virus scan and anti malware scan first before installing all my automatic update from sp 1 to sp3. All I had installed was firefox 3.5 and anti virus/maleware scan.

Oh :), wish you would said it early, I didn't disk defagment each download, I just installed full way sp1 to sp3 without running virus scan or disk defagment for each install or download.
