Win XP Service Pack 3 Query

  Legslip 09:04 03 Jun 2009

Does anyone know if it is possible to download AND SAVE SV Pack 3 for a single user, not the multi ding dong edition?

If so, does it contain previous SV Packs?

Hmm, my Go-faster stripes are getting a bit worn-out!

Thanks Technotiger but thats not the one I want. That one is for IT Professionals & Developers (the Ding Dong version). I'm sure there is a single user version.

This page will say that this installation package is intended for IT professionals and developers. However, you can safely download this file. The following file is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center:

Thanks Technotiger. OK, I will download that version. It is just that I think there was a single user edition which I presume would have been a smaller file size.

There`s a downloadable ISO Image that I`ve burnt to disc and have used on several machines. click here

There Is a smaller version.To get It make sure you have automatic updates turned on and visit windows update with Internet explorer.Doing It this way means you only get the files you need downloaded and not the full package.As far as I know this is the only way to get the smaller version as everyones computer will be different so microsoft will scan your computer and just download what you need.

Sorry missed the last bit.The only one you can download and save Is the one the others have already linked you to.
