    Smile XP Service pack 3

    Hello everyone! Its been a year since i last posted a message but lets quit the chitchat and start the questions.

    My XP Media Center Edition told me that service pack 3 was ready to be install. Usual i always install windows update but since i'm been hearing lot of bad press about this service pack, i need your opinion if i should install it or stick with service pack 2?

    ^Depends on the permission you give it. I have it set to notify me and ask for confirmation since I don't want WMP11.

    I would recommend not installing SP3 until they have resolved most of the issues it causes.
    Just some of the problems it can cause can be found here:

    http://tech.yahoo.com/blogs/null/94445 - gives some links to fixes
    http://windowssecrets.com/comp/040325/
    http://www.lockergnome.com/windows/2...ervice-pack-3/

    I personally haven't installed SP3 and don't plan to do so. My SP2 workd fine the way it is.

    Personally I've never encountered any problems with SP3. Works fine until my laptop died on me. Like really died. No, SP3 didn't cause it. And so i'm stuck with Vista now.

    SP3 has worked fine for me so far as well. The only problems I have are the same ones that I've had with SP2.

    Just install the damn thing already.. its a service pack, its just a bunch of FIXES to the broken things on your windows!

    If you don't install, is just like not fixing your roof, because you are afraid of aliens!

    Rename the Big Mac to something more convoluted and obesity due to McDonald's will be cut by 80%.
