last night my auto update advised me there were updates for my pc, when i checked it one was for a defender update and the other said it was sp3, after reading various issues and problems with this download i decided to check this morning for myself in ad/remove after ticking show updates i find no listing for sp3 hence my question above.


right click my computer>properties,should tell you there.

or type into run winver

In my Add/Remove SP3 is shown near the bottom (without showing updates) listed as Windows XP Service Pack 3.

As *Raven* correctly states, right clicking on My Computer>Properties>General tab will indicate if you have "Service Pack 3" (the Final version); the previous Beta version comes up as SP3 RC2.

I used VoG's link in this thread, click here to download mine yesterday. As far as PC's are concerned I would trust VoG with my life, so to speak.
