Default Win XP SP3 Final

Well we have waited long enough for this release.

I have been using SP3 since the 25th April in two Virtual PC's, and I have installed it on two of my neighbours computers directly over the top of their old installs. All are going well and have had no problems glitch wise.

I made sure that the computers were scanned for malware and a AV scan was done first. I disabled the net connection and stopped the firewall and AV apps. Then I installed the pack, this took about 15 minutes on the slowest computer.

Direct download of SP3 (316 megs) from Microsoft here. Be aware this is a .exe file.

Or if you want to get the download from Major Geeks here...
