Hi and thanx in advance for any help offered.
I've been trying to install service pack three, it downloads ok, but
when it tries to install i get a message saying, "Set up cannot copythe
file.. ati3d2ag.dll(my color), it does give me
the option to proceed with out the copying, but my question is?
is it safe to do so?
I googled the file and it came up as a graphics card, but i believe
mine is built in, (3D AGP extreme graphics).

Thanx again and thanx 4 being here.

Hi :thumbsup:.

Some info about the file in question: http://www.filename.info/f/ati3d2ag.dll.html

Since it's an ATI file (which can be installed, if needed, anytime)...I would see if you can just skip it. My experience with XP is that when one file cannot install, it usually has followers, so I won't be surprised if you have abandon the idea of just skipping it.

Yes, it is perfectly safe to do so, it's not a system file.
