    Hi!I don't know who says that but I have not problem here with SP3.There have been hundreds of fixes from SP2 to SP3, its not really safe to run an outdated OS.Not even ZASS can protect you from the many exploits out there targeting XP...CheersFax

    I agree with you. This is not my choice. I know many people have had to reformat. I dont want that mess.

    I heard many programs will not work. I have some old programs I need to use on my computer and also heard the windows updates will not work after you install this. Read this article:

    http://news.cnet.com/dont-install-wi...ce-pack-3-yet/

    I plan to keep windows xp serv pack 2 probably forever because they are not fixing sp 3. I probably will just buy a new computer with vista at some point or windows 7.

    I just have no choice here.

    I have XP-pro SP3 installed on a Dell desktop. Updates have worked without a hitch. I have not had any problems with the SP3.I have not upgraded that machine to the new ZASS 8.0.059.000 yet.
    I just installed ZASS 8.0.059
    on my Vista laptop to test drive it. So far so good.
