I am currently running Windows XP SP2 with no problems.My computer has an AMD Athlon XP 2600+ which I have heard can cause incompatibility issues with SP3.Would you advise upgrading or staying as I am?Thanks
If it aint broke, don't fix it!
Yes it has security updates

I am now on W7 and switched from XP a couple of weeks ago. You may like to read this as well:click hereI agree with the others , best to keep up with the security issues.
It could be said that your operating system is broken and needs fixing as many security breaches have been identified that have been fixed in SP3 and it later updates.
Hi, I have sucessefully updated 4 HP AMD computers to SP3 but you have to use this little .exe from HP's website. click hereI hope this helps.
Good suggestion & link Michael_R.Just discovered that Microsoft have their own fixes too click here. G
BEWARE a lot of people have issues with USB devices not working after upgrade to SP3 !Just Google "USB SP3"
Just a quick update, after doing a system backup I decided to install sp3.Took a while but no issues so far.Almost 1gb hard drive space gone though.
Glad that went well :-).Don't forget to re-visit Win Update for post SP3 updates. They will most probably be offered in batches, so expect to pay a few visits before exhausting them all (there are over 100 of these). Reboot the PC whenever it asks you to. G
