Warning, Warning Will Robinson - XP SP3 Cripples PC's with endless reboots!!!

http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9084418&source=rss_news50





I have the ASUS motherboard as well as AMD (single core CPU) and for the fun of it I have decided to give it a shot. It installed well, took out memory flash stick that I had attached to a USB port and rebooted the box...no problem XP came out without any issues. So I have proceeded with my laptop as well (Dell Mobile Workstation M90) and no problem as well...hopefully I won't find some crazy things in the near future :)

I've been running SP3 for a couple of days without any problems. Although I did a total backup before installing, it seemed like a very safe deal. I still trust MS more than many/most other software developers.

You must be a fan of Al Gore. Thanks, but I think I will pass.

I have had much more severe problems with other company's stuff. It baffles me how folks use intrusive and/or memory sucking crap from the multitude of developers out there, but hate MS. I am still leery of anything new from MS though, just not paranoid.

SP3 still running fine.

I installed SP3 and right as I was typing this post my PC exploded.

The most important attribute of SP3 is that it rolls all the previous system/security updates into a single package. No kidding; that's ninety-percent of the deal. If you insist on running an unpatched/unvalidated system, you won't want it. If you need all the patches, however, SP3 is certainly faster than WU.

I'm patched and validated. The problem is that this SP3 can't differentiate between my CPU's and certain Intel chips.

I installed it last week, and I haven't noticed problems. Everything checks out. Old AMD Sempron processor (Socket 7something) here.

It's been nearly a month and everything seems to be running fine. However, I just received an article that has given me a little cause for concern-apparently, there are a significant number of system that don't respond very well to SP3. Perhaps I should have been a little more wary.

The link is to a geek site article regarding SP3.
