Re: XP SP3



Please be specific. Which downloaded file are you referring to?

Have you seen the troubleshooting suggestions from this page:

I always have success installing SP3 when I do the following:

1. Install it from the file here:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=5B33B5A8-5E76-401F-BE08-1E1555D4F3D4&displaylang=en

2. Configure a Clean Boot before you install SP3:

3. Make sure IE is at IE6 level.
