Service Pack 3 Today

Postby ShinyElGhosteo » February 21st, 2017, 10:26 pm

It appears that Microsoft has removed service pack 3 from their website so now I am clueless on where to download it. Those other sites seem sketchy.

Service pack 3 should be with the automatic updates, should still give you it via there.

When I open the windows update page it just says page not found. It's a fresh copy of XP SP2 on a Pentium 4 Machine.

It never asked for you to install updates at any given time? Is it connected to the Internet properly?

It never asked, however, I got a hold of the original SP3 download link thanks to the guys at OSForums. Once It installed it then asked for auto update and the windows update page worked as normal.

That's great. I suppose QCS or Sprite can now close this thread
