Have you tried booting with a USB flash drive inserted in your system? I've heard of this problem with Asus motherboards (although they've been with AMD processors)

Hi,
I have removed my USB stick (used with eBoostr) , exit Antivirus and spyware products and it seams that I was I bit futher BUT almost at the end (I suppose) the window "software Update Installation Wizard" just closes, the "installing Udates" windows stays there and does not change, the Task Manager show NO activity ........

I decided to restore to "before XP SP3 installation" afterwards I looked at the svcpack.log (see attached copy) and it seams that my system was waiting for a reboot???
Help appreciated.
Thanks in advance

I have installed this on my laptop which is ASUS with and AMD processor and have had no problems at all. All my Windows XP machines had no problems. Seems to me the downloaded files from Microsoft maybe corrupt. Try downloading the file from Microsoft and running it on the machine instead of using Windows update.

Give that a go and let us know how you went.

I wonder if eBoostr is conflicting with the Service Pack installation - I'd suggest uninstalling it until this issue is remedied.
Did you reboot? If so, were there any errors/messages on reboot? What does Windows say about the Service Pack level (Use the System applet in Control Panel (Classic View)).

I have had issues with SP3 on a fresh install of Windows - and a proprietary tool that I use demands that the system be updated to SP2. Our fix is to uninstall SP3, install SP2, then reinstall SP3.

FWIW - I've never been sure if SP2 is a prerequisite for SP3 (some places say yes, most say no) - so as a safety feature I install SP2 before installing SP3.

"Try downloading the file from Microsoft and running it on the machine instead of using Windows update"
Download done, it is possible to run it in safe mode??

"Did you reboot? " NO I reloaded the restore point .... I was afraid .... :thumbsup:
"sp2" Is already installed on the XP

Thanks for assisting me.

I'm not 100% sure you if can install SP3 in safe mode BUT it's worth a try. Try install it in Windows before trying Safe Mode.
