How to find the Windows XP Service Pack 3 FAQ

I’ve had a couple of people ask me about Service Pack 3 for Windows XP recently, and what features it contains.

The simple answer is… none that you’re likely to find interesting!

The biggest benefit to XP SP3 I’ve found thus far is that when I’m building or upgrading a new PC, installing the XP SP3 update means I don’t have to install hundreds of smaller updates instead – as SP3 “rolls up” those other updates!

For the full story you can find a good FAQ on Windows XP SP3 at the excellent Paul Thurrotts Supersite for Windows web-site.

If you’re running Windows XP (be it Home or Professional) and want to upgrade to SP3, then it’s now available from the Windows Update site or as a standalone download.
