XP SP3

Trying to install SP3 and the Software Update Wizard says that it is updating the system, please wait etc and states that it is performing a clean up. The problem is that it has been displaying this message for almost 24 hours! Surely this cannot be right, or can it? Should I have uninstalled IE as some threads suggest before installing? Should I turn the PC off and start again?

Something is wrong here if you're updating via Microsoft update. Try cancelling the update so it 'rolls' back. Reboot and if successful uninstall IE8 to roll back to IE7. No other options available in my humble opinion, unless someone else has a better idea.

Noy using auto update. Will try rdave13 method first and then slipstreaming, which does look a bit daunting. Thanks for the suggestions.
