Windows XP sevice pack 3

  geedad 09:54 19 Mar 2009

I have received several automatic update messages referring to Windows XP Service pack 3, which I have denied at the moment.
I believe that I had a bad experience some time back, when I tried to install this.
Does anyone have any information of their own experiences about this download?
Any help wpould be appreciated.

Its all very old hat now. Just go ahead and install it and if you don't like it, uninstall it.

I had a lot of initial trouble with SP3 and then .Net Framework 3.5 and so did most others. Microsoft took it all on board and bringing out patches and since then new versions. Go fo it, as iscanut said it has an uninstall.

I tried installing this update a while ago and had to uninstall it as it stopped my Wireless USB device from working, has anybody else experienced this problem.

Thank you all for your responses. I will probably go ahead and if I get problems, uninstall it.
