Windows XP won't update to SP3. PC details: XP SP2 Home. 2002
SONY PCV-RS404, Pentium 4 CPU 3.00Ghz, 2.99 Ghz 1.GB Ram.
I am on Internet Explorer 8.
Also, Windows Update doesn't work despite me using the Microsoft Update Downloader. Otherwise the PC is OK. I just want to have the current software updated to enable other downloads to install.
Having tried the advice from Microsoft to no avail, perhaps a forum member has an answer?
Sorry I did not reply sooner - I don't always get forum replies in my inbox. Just spotted this when coming back to the forum.
My old XP is partitioned into 2 directories. I had a total original space of 160GB, and it is now divided equally - 80/80, programs on C, and data on D. Fairly simple really. I've ended up with about 59 on C, and about the same on D. Because it is my 'old' PC, I am not too worried about SP3, and If I can, I might convert it to Windows 8.
Thanks again for your response, I always reply if I receive the emails.
