Since MSoft has abandoned support of Win xp sp3, I have done a fresh install.

Fresh install of Win xp sp2 requires Adobe Reader, but do I really have to install Flash Player.
I keep getting pork installers of Google Chrome, McAfee, etc., which I keep uninstalling.

You can manually download and install SP/3 for Windows XP.

 

Follow: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24

 

FYI... Last I checked, once SP/3 was installed, the Windows Update Site (Install Microsoft Update) was available for other downloads.

 

Good Luck

 

Keep BC posted!

No.  You don't have to install Flash Player - not unless you want to watch flash content.

I keep getting pork installers of Google Chrome, McAfee, etc., which I keep uninstalling.

What do you mean by "pork installers"?
