Hello forum folks, I still have dial-up at home but high speed at work so I downloaded the new service pack 3 to a usb flash drive at work and would like to know the proper way to install it to my home computer. Is it as simple as opening to my desktop than "open" or do I have to follow a specific procedure? I someone can walk me thru this I would appreciate it. Thanks. Also, don't know if you need this but if so I have xp pro with 2 gigs of ram and 120gig hard drive.

See here for information on SP3.

Thanks for the link Budapest but nowhere on it were there instructions on how to install the sp3 from a usb flash drive. Has anyone done this and if so, how? Thank you.

I would copy the file off the USB drive onto the hard drive of your home computer and then install it.
