    Thumbs up Re: Upgrading to XP SP3

    Here are some of my additional thoughts: after looking thru your past posts, it appears you have AMD memory processors - you may need to perform additional procedures.

    Click here > http://forums.zonelabs.com/showpost....09&postcount=2 <> (my former "HP" pc had AMD and I had various issues with upgrading my XP home ed. with SP2 to SP3 - after several failed attempts I did succeed.)

    See here about AMD > http://msinfluentials.com/blogs/jesper/archive/2008/05/08/does-your-amd-based-computer-boot-after-installing-xp-sp3.aspx <> ( I used his 'hack' and it worked )

    Basically you may need to shut off all security software during the download/ installation of SP3 - firewall, browser security/forcefield, anti-virus, anti-spyware -your SpywareDoctor. There is a list of error codes from Microsoft 'if' there are any errors/ failures - write them down and find out- Microsoft.com has much info on 'how to perform upgrade.'

    It is in your best interest to upgrade to XP SP3; it can be done.

    XP SP2 will no longer have any updates from Microsoft; but SP3 will continue to do so for a few more years.
