SP3 is the term used for hotfixes released after SP2.

The web site explains it:

"It's a 100+ hotfix pack of many of the Windows XP SP3 fixes up for download.

These are fixes that you would have to call Microsoft and get through their support center."

Could be worth downloading actually.....

looks great but why didnt windows update just download them?

  Stuartli 18:54 14 Sep 2005

Why not?

This is the original:

There's an Unofficial Windows98SE Service Pack and this is another variation on the theme.

Or then again maybe not....

If the exe files are in the usual MS format of KBxxxxxx you are going to have hundreds of fixes and no idea of what they are for. Of course you could just install all of them (rather you than me !) and hope for the best !

Let us know what the zip file contains please

getting paraniod now lol maybe i wont install them

  Stuartli 19:00 14 Sep 2005

If you didn't think it was real, why did you download it?

  wolfie3000 19:01 14 Sep 2005

well i spopped the download i first thought ohhh looks good i will have that but then after yoda knight said that it put doubts in my mind

  Yoda Knight 19:15 14 Sep 2005

Looking at the link Stuartli posted above, it looks like there may be instructions within the zip file that could give you the details I mentioned.

Up to you...
