Hmmmmm, think I might wait on Sp3 release, I can still remember the early version of Win. ME that had the year 2000 bug , and woulden't restore without a patch ,  :evil2: the patch worked ok , but lost the previous restore points ,  :tickedoff:

thanks Coknuck, I see it is a pre -release  ,

and comes with this warning "do not use this  software on primary or mission critical systems." and as I am allways on a mission  :smitten:

I am going to give it a miss , I just hope it slipstreams OK onto the original Xp disk ,

and I have restore turned off on my machine , I just do a monthly ASR shadow copy , that way if I hit problems , the hard drive gets formated ,

and it reloads Xp sp2 back on in about 20 mins. along with  of all the programs ,

Hi jeffwalker... first ,Merry Christmas " or seasonal greeting whichever is suitable , you are tempting me to give SP3 a try, maybe I will try it on my spare puter , as I like the sound of "faster "  and with my old boxes I could do with any speed increase I can get ,

Download & install it last night onto my second computer. No problems so far.

If you have Spybot S&D Resident on,you might want to temporary disable it when you install the patch. It will save your index finger some wear & tear.

yes I have spybot res. and with the missing address bar that is 2 strikes and out for me , do I need this ? when sp3 full is going to be released in first quarter 2008 ?, I always figured it was not a good idea to be the first in the queue on a new release, . puter stuff or cars , , Just my way of thinking I guess , Why should I be the unpaid test dummy  ?

I agree

it will make you click click

also turn off all unneeded tsr services

before you begin the installment

it is beta

so be careful if going to install

To disable and restart spybot only takes a few click, it's no big deal. I also notice that I do not have a Prefetch file in C:/windows any more. It does not matter I disable it anyway. I do not know if it had anything to do with the patch.
