Hi,

Got WSP3 but it won't install properly coming up with all sorts of error nessages. I had to restore the PC to a prior time point. Anyone else had the same issues?

Cheers,
J

No, no problems with it here after a reinstall, rotormota, suggest a re-download and try again.

These has caused me a lot of grief. So far tried it on 12 machines and none of them would boot up afterwards. They all hung at Applying Computer Settings (all on a Domain). I had to uninstall in safe mode. As a test I reformatted one of them and tried it on a the now clean machine, and had no problems. So there was something on these machines it didn't like.

Dowload SP3 to desktop - dont install, Disconnect from internet. Disable Virus and firewall, restart in safemode, Install SP3. reinstall virus and firewall. Reboot.

i got SP3 and it caused nothing but trouble when connecting to internet, and trying to upload to web site. connection kept dropping. Solution get rid of it and just down load the updates instead problem solved.

I am pretty sure these problems are to do with virus software of firewalls. If you do as above it should be ok. rotormota - what anti virus are you running?

Webroot Antivirus/Spyware with Firewall.

All antivirus and antimalware should be disabled prior to installing SP3.

Diasble it, reboot and try again.
