Hi,
I have not yet installed Windows XP Service Pack 3.
Is it ok to install now or are there still problems with it?
Also am i right in thinking that i saw a post on here that said uninstall I.Explorer 7 first and then install IE 7 again after installing Windows XP Service Pack 3.
Thanks.

I had to uninstall ESET Smart Security before it would install.Ive had no problemd since installing it.

Just go to ms updates and install it.

I switched off my Firewall before installing SP3 and had no problems.

Reading this article, you only need to do as you suggest if you need to uninstall IE7 at a later date. Frankly, I can't see why anyone would wna to uninstall IE7 now so there's not real issue.

disable your security software during install especially norton and enable again after install.

to prevent problems with some registry keys.

I,personally,was not suggesting anything merely passing on the link which MeandHer was looking for.

As I became a 100% convert to Firefox over two years ago I only take a passing interest in the issues which people have with IE7.

No problems at all, did not turn anything off

So far tried it on a number of machines and all ok except one. It refused to boot afterwards and had to uninstall in safe mode.
This machine did have Eset installed.

SP3 installed Ok for me but I think turning off any third party firewall and third party anti-virus (leave any Microsoft Firewall and Anti-malware running) is a sensible idea.

Do we have to be connected to the internet if trying to load this using a disc ?
I couldn't get the Auto-download bit to load so sent for CD from M.Soft.
