    It's already released. Only direct link, not available on Windows Update yet. They need to solve compatibility issue with Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System.

    I've also installed it.Nothing distinguishable found so far though.No problem so far.Will have to run 3DMark 2006 too to see if SP3 affects the score or not.

    Check here: Tech ARP - ED#88 : Windows XP SP3 RTM Confirmed Rev. 1.2!

    Tech ARP article on SP3 has been updated, should be out around 10 June 08. So this means that the SP3 available now is not official and the one which will be released at June will have a newer version of SP3 which has the fix. No point downloading and installing the current SP3.

    I already did the download & installed it but whenever it goes official, i'll uninstall the current version & will download the official version. ;)

    Going to install this when I re-install XP on my second machine. I found Ubuntu very unstable with the O/C on that machine never had an issue with XP. Since it's a 32 bit based system I really can't see using Vista on it as Vista isn't as stable O/Cing as XP either :)

    PPS: THX for the link acedriver :thumb:

    Actually, the link acedriver posted should be the official RTM version of Service Pack 3. It is just not available for auto-update by Windows Update right now.

    Oh ok i won't have to download the SP3 again.:D Thanks.

    Ya just re-installing XP on the other machine the silly thing is you need IE6 or better to DL SP2 because you can't with Firefox off the MS site. So you have to DL IE6 ... then SP2 and then IE7. Kind of redundant isn't it ? :think:

    you can dl sp2 with any browser

    Download details: Windows XP Service Pack 2 for IT Professionals and Developers

    are you asking for sp2 or sp3? :think:

    When you DL SP2 directly off the MS site it asks for IE6 or better unless you use auto update ... np and sorted here SP3 is next :D
