I have a 2004 HP running XP Pro. I recently F-Disked and re-installed the HP operating system from the origional restore disks. It included SP1a only.
I need to install SP2 and SP3.
Even though I have Automatic Updates turned on, I am not being notified of available updates.
I am running a 2002 version of Explorer,and also seem unable to upgrade that (error follows).
Error Proceedure entry point could not be located in dynamic link library.
I believe this is because I do not have SP2.
I have installed Mozilla FireFox.
At the Microsoft site I can only find a SP2 download for "IT Professionals servicing netwrks", which is not me...
Microsoft does not seem to offer the SP1 to SP2 download anymore...
or, perhaps you need Explorer 5.0 or higher to download.
I am not sure which is the case, but I seem to be trapped in a "Catch-22".
