I have SP2 installed, but I would like to upgrade to SP3. The problem is that my internet connection is slow for downloading a big file. Is there any other way to get it without downloading?

I don't know where XPWhizzKid lives but I thought the SP3 on CD was only available in the States?

He could find a friend with a faster connection and download it to a flash drive.

If I am not mistaken, there is a cost involved to order the SP3 cd. If you don't know of anyone that would allow you to use their connection you could also go to your local Library.

If your XP is a desktop, see if a friend will let you borrow their laptop.
