I finally got the sp3 downloaded XP Pro (Intel not AMD) and installed and was wondering if I could clear up some space by removing any older stuff which may be redundant. Is this sensible?

Thanks,

Humble Beginner.

If you are asking...whether you remove previous critical updates installed...the answer is no.

The redundancy that may be built into a given SP...is eliminated once the files are installed.

Example: SP2 includes SP1 updates and SP2 updates. Once SP2 is installed, the older SP1 update files are (probably) replaced by newer files automatically. Each file installed is necessary for proper defense of the system.
