SP3 Install for windows XP

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was given the following Instructions from microsoft.
1. Download "WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe" from the link below:



Windows XP Service Pack 3

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/i...P3-x86-ENU.exe



2. Restart the computer and start pressing the F8 key on the keyboard. On a computer that is configured to boot multiple Operating Systems, press the F8 key when you see the boot menu.

3. When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, select Safe Mode, and then press Enter.

4. Log onto Windows by using the Administrator account or any user account with Administrator privileges.

5. Double click the downloaded file "WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe" on the Desktop to install Windows XP SP3 in Safe Mode.

I was having Issues installing SP3. The above worked. The Issues I had after the Install
1 If you have a third party firewall, You may have Internet connection problems.
2 There were error messages relating to my D-link wireless adapter, but it worked.
3. My Diskeeper Defrag software is creating MMC Snapin Errors, But it works.
The D-link issue is common after SP3 Install. The Diskeeper issue I will fix.
You may need a few restarts and perhaps shut Downs B4 everything works. I also ran a CHKDSK.
I just thought I would post this Info.
