Thanks for the update

I'd wait and see what happens to the first ones - that's when further problems are likely to show up.

I've never had any problems with SP3 RC2...:-)

"I've never had any problems with SP3 RC2...:-)"

I did! Installed okay so it seemed but PC would not reboot (Constant restart wouldn't even boot into Safe Mode. Possible problem with gd132.dll but not had time to retry install).

Think I am with DieSse and will see what happens to others on release.

cheers for the info

Where's the panic - we've all been running happily without it, and there's no unmissable benefits.

If anything tells us it's a good idea to wait and see it's the Vista SP1 release.

Exactly. What's the rush? Why do people get so excited? What is there to get excited about? I suppose I must be missing something and I'd love it if someone could explain.

Just restored a laptop to factory settings and deployed Service Pack 3 - complete doddle and no problems so far. Windows update then only gave me 2 updates (Non Critical) - IE7 was one of them. What`s the fuss? (Perhaps MS have got something right for once!)

I've run it from the Beta version some months ago with no problems.
Agree with you Taff™. My version of XP is old'ish and SP1. Last time I did a re-install I waited forever to install SP2 and all the other stuff.
