XP SP3

This is pathetic. My video editor requires XP SP3 to run. This is a HUGE 316mb file which I actually got from Microsoft with a download manager over a dial up connection. Now that it's finally installed, I got a bunch of weird symbols showing up in text boxes. Then I come to find it requires another HUGE file called "SP3 symbols" to patch this problem. I downloaded this file from Microsoft and it fails to open saying it's corrupt.

Obviously, d/ling these HUGE files ties up my computer all day/night - then turns out to be a waste of time and bandwidth.

Suggestions?

Must have been the 'new' fonts that you installed that messed it up then.

Glad it's sorted.

Don't forget to green tick thread by clicking on the grey tick next to the answer that you gave that solved it.
