Hi there

I had a look on the windows download site and see a version of XP Service Pack 3, but it looks as though this is still a beta version. Am I right? Should I wait a bit for the full version to come out?

a this stage leave it as the final version will be out any day now and the beta will need to be uninstalled which took about half an hour last time for me.

Thank you! That's what I thought, but I wasn't sure.

I looked at the link posted above and I now I really don't understand. Should I load SP3 RC or wait for a full release of SP3? Will that be coming? I also can't understand what exactly it is updating. Sorry, not understanding what they mean by refreshing code.

"Should I load SP3 RC"

No. Unless you're happy with Betas

"or wait for a full release of SP3?"


"Will that be coming?"

Yes. Probably later this month
