The problem is not SP3. It was the last security update (KB951748) from MS that zapped ZoneAlarm. ZoneAlarm Instant SupportThe primary problem that I'm dealing with is that it has been disabling the internet for users with Zone Alarm.
I've had to repair 4 pc's now by removing Zone Alarm and installing different firewall software or else it blocks IE. (the suggestion of "use firefox" turns some people's stomachs who are too used to MSIE)
It was a very specific OEM install of those listed above; it was a HP error not the fault of AMD or MS in this case. HP failed to heed memo's and was installing incorrect O/S releases on AMD powered machines.
You don't happen to be using a Zone Alarm firewall?I installed the XP3 update the other day. I went here to see what people were saying about it first, it didn't seem too bad so I installed. Wrong. Even after doing a previous restore point and going back it still freezes when surfing, especially when printing, and prompts error messages after the update only. Worked great before update. Not cool. XP home, Sp1 & 2, Tosh Q-35 laptop.
