so, i'm ressurecting a pc that was dormant for a while. just in case the other two... well you get it.

so, i downloaded service pack 3, and cancelled at the backup prompt because i realised I had yet to back anything up
since breathing some life back into the computer.

so i was intending to shut it down for the night,
but to my amazement, it just locked up.
once the shutdown is hit, the computer completely locks up.
I must power off by the killswitcher.
now, will finishing the installation of the service pack 3 fix this?
or can i make it worse. I've yet to experience this ,so i'm at odds with
doing anything yet.

hmm initial research tells me, that it may be something still running,
or did a system file get corrupted. i'm unsure.

any suggestions would be appreciated.

I would back up anything that you may wish to keep then finish the install, very possibly the installer is still sitting there trying to do its job.
