Anyone here experienced any problems after installing XP Service Pack 3? I've heard bad things about it and am wondering if it is safe to install on my mom's Dell.
It seems it maybe more of an OEM issue, but the clear disclaimer note: (you almost want to say any home user or non-company tech that D/L this is a knucklehead; LOL)
I find the complete version very handy. I use it when reinstalling computers to avoid hours of downloads. I burn it to CD then use the SP after installs. XP has broken licensing and you cannot use a license key for OEM XP no service packs on a OEM XP SP2 CD, or upgrade license, etc.
They would rather Windows Update determine what you need to do the update. A recipe for disaster in my book. Download the whole package and feel better about it.It seems it maybe more of an OEM issue, but the clear disclaimer note: (you almost want to say any home user or non-company tech that D/L this is a knucklehead; LOL)
