Service Pack 3

I understand that Service Pack 3 can now be installed. Has anyone done that yet, or is it wiser to wait?

I've installed it and it's great for getting the fixes post-SP2. One warning though: after a reformat and after installing SP2, install your sound driver before SP3.

Why so anxious?

I suggest that that you wait for MS to sort out their continuing problems with this before even thinking about installing - even now at the last minute it's gone back yet again for a revamp.

I'm waiting a good long time before even thinking about installing this - I've been caught out by faulty MS update in the past.

Thanks both, I think I'll wait.

ditto; patience is a virtue, run a search and you will find many overzealous (dare i say greedy) people who have had no end of problems because of impatience.

Despite the pessimism some have expressed, I've had no problems whatsoever with either SP3 RC2 or the Final version.

One thing, Declanworld can you give some more information about the sound driver comment?

What's greedy about downloading a service pack?

The only service pack that makes me greedy is a six pack of Stella Artois!
