Well after the three bars I waited for about 15-20 minutes and nothing happens and the computer seemed very quiet (nornally you hear it whirring when something is installnig etc.). It didn't crash or anything. Should I have waited a little longer?
If I retry now do I have to re downlaod it or is it sitting somewhere on my hard drive and I can just try to install again.
I had trouble with SP3 - it installed but my MCE TV stopped. Do you have third party Firewall and Virus stopper? I had Commodo and AVG8. In the end, after advice from MS, I uninstalled SP3 using the Control panel. Then I downloaded and saved - not run- AVG8, Commodo, and SP3 (From MS developers site) Then disconnected from internet and uninstalled AVG and Commodo. Then reboot in safe mode. Then install SP3 in safe mode. Reboot again, install AVG and Commodo from desktop.Then reconnect to internet. It cured the TV problem, Maybe some Virus checkers or firewalls cause a problem,good luck! (You may have to adapt the above for your software)
