Microsoft Sp3 Update
Posted 14 May 2008 - 05:39 AM
My laptop (Toshiba A30) runs Windows XP Home + SP2.
I've gone to Microsoft Windows Update, It required "Active-X" before I could proceed. So I installed the "Active-X" but was it the correct thing to do? After checking my pc, Microsoft Windows Update strongly indicated I should down load SP3. I've heard bad reports about SP3 and I'm not sure, to download or not?

As far as SP3 is concerned, there have been a few issues with people installing it on some AMD systems. It mostly has something to do with on how the manufacturer set up the operating system. I used update and installed it with no problem.
I did De-fragment, run anti-virus and anti-spyware scans before doing so along with starting a restore point (in case something went wrong). The other things to consider are to un-install IE7 before updating. As it stands right now, if you don't do this you won't be able to un-install IE7 (if you have problems with it) without un-installing SP3 first...Minor inconvience IMHO.
