Hi! This is my first time here at Bleeping Computer. I am having 3 different computer problems: 2 of them are on my desktop computer which has Windows XP & 1 is on my laptop which has Windows 7. Here is the first problem. I want to use Windows Update to upgrade from Service Pack 2 to Service Pack 3, but every time I try the update, it says that "the website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view". It also shows it's because of the error number that you see as the title of the post. I've been having this problem for the last week. I am asking for your help.

You are a couple of years late...to download SP3 via Windows Update...but you can download it manually and install it from your desktop.

OK...and...what is the significance of that...when it comes to installing XP SP3?

Don't get confused by the wording on that webpage :), just download it and install it. Webpage wording was develope3d so that most home users would go to the Windows Update site. Well, that option is not available...and this webpage is the one many of us used when we installed SP3.

I should have made that clear earlier, but I've gotten so used to ignoring the webpage wording...all I see is the Download button :).

Click Start, and then click Run.

Restart the PC and try to update

You guys can lock this thread up now. I tried Narenxp's advice & it worked. Not only is Windows Update working, but I also got Service Pack 3 on the desktop computer. Thanks everyone for all your help. That's one computer problem solved.
