Windows XP SP3

Recommended Posts

Has anyone installed SP3 for XP yet? I was just wondering if there were any negative or even positive affects on FSX. Thank you.

MS has pulled it, if not mistaken. Apparently there were some conflicts (read crashes) with some applications. But once it's ready to go, it should definitely be installed. There's some Vista goodies brought over, particularly with security updates for networking.**so I've heard... ;)

I bought Gears of War from Microsoft and couldnt get it to run.I checked their forums and they had 150+ and counting pages of people with problems.Thats just a video game.This is a MAJOR system update so I can only imagine.I will be holding off at bit before I load it.
