How do I know if I've got SP3 on my XP PC

  Halmer 12:29 11 May 2008


I've checked Windows Update and there are no updates available.

Under system info it tells me I have SP2.

So why does everyone seem to downloading sp3 other than me?!!

Just right click on my computer - properties

Add remove.It would be near the bottom.

My Compuer>Properties>General tab. SP3 will be listed as Service Pack 3 only or, as buteman states, it will be listed in Add/Remove Programs.

so how come everyone else seems to be downloading it?

Using RegEdit, go to HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate - make sure there's not an entry named DoNotAllowSP. If there is, delete it and reboot.

Start menu, run, type WinVer is another way, in answer to your original question

Make a backup of your system, some people have reported an endless reboot cycle after installing SP3. Had no such problems myself, on 5 systems so far.
