Re: Service Pack 3

This has been out awhile, no (since May)? I keep my Windows XP Pro virtual machines (running on OS-X via Parallels) updated all the time and both seem fine (desktop and laptop).

No problems here. Running Windows XP Pro. FYI: Running Photoshop CS3 and Lightroom 2.0. I would backup your data just in case, you never know.

See ya,

Re: Service Pack 3

No issues. Installed it on many pc's including my own. It is a large SP, so as Dana says, backup first. But, it should be smooth.

Re: Service Pack 3

Skydog, I haven't upgraded to it yet due to the warnings "not to upgrade" that came out initially, but most of the problems I've read about happened with AMD processors. I'm going to "backup and install it" sometime soon, but only after reading the tips below...

XP SP3's Aches, Pains, and User Complaints - read the part under heading "Free Tech Support from Microsoft" - the PC World author upgraded to SP3 on his wife's computer and had problems, finally deciding to un-install the upgrade.

Re: Service Pack 3

No problems on my end either. It was installed quite some time ago too.
