Windows XP Service Pack 3 Released to Manufacturing


Recommended Posts

There will certainly be a heavy server load for this much-anticipated upgrade.

Since MS has now fixed Vista - they want happy XP users, we shall see.

As I've said elsewhere, you might expect some Vista bits in this update, I do not know for sure.

Is MS saying that .NET and Silverlight are neccessary updates? Gimme a break. <_<

Don't know however everytime I visit the MS site they have that damned Silverlight popup which started getting old, and I have no intention of ever using it so I blocked it!

windows xp sp3(x86 systems only)


download link is up!:D


It is not on Windows Update yet - you may get much larger builds elsewhere if you wish to hog your hard-drive.



It was a 324MB download and after about 10 minutes of installing it failed with Permission Failure running as Administrator on my XP Pro system.

Thanks Hazel, that is going to be an important link for quite awhile.

Also thanks for the correction about direct links for users.

I like to know exactly where I am linking to.

For news people and bloggers to say click HERE or SOURCE or LINK is one thing.

But when you don't know to trust the provider or not,I usually don't click on such links.

I don't want to be dropped into the middle of Broodersoft or PukerKasino or KoolGates.
