I'm going to download it for my work laptop soon. I talked to a sysadmin yesterday and he said he hasn't had any problems with it.

I've had to re-install xp pro on my laptop in the past week due to a virus.

I'd installed the SP3 update prior to that, and since then, Its on SP 2 and while 10 updates, including SP3 and update for explorer 7.0 have downloaded, they all fail to install.

Any brainiacs have a solution for that?

I have installed SP3 on all my PCs. No problems with it.

Which method are you using to update? Are you going to windowsupdate.com and doing it from the website or through the Windows Update app on the computer?
