Always handy to have. Thanks justpcsupport.
Anyone installed this on clients machines yet? Encountered any problems?

I used ctupdate which automatically downloaded the full 316MB SP3. I've installed it on 4 computers with no issues so far.

I installed it on my pc last month (on 23 or 25 Apr) and haven't had any problems.

I have seen no issues so far. Honestly one machine was running fairly well. I updated it to sp3 and it seemed faster. Probably fixed some bad system files.

I always wait 2 weeks with MS service packs - I know I am a Linux guy but they seem to have a high percentage of oops releases

This iso works well.

Installed it on my laptop and media center so far no real problems. I have had one annoyance I have to go to my mapped drives and open them before I can use uTorrent to download directly to my media center via my laptop.

Resist the temptation to install it, especially on AMD boxes.

installed on 23 machines, different types - AMD, Intel... not a single problem! Just remember... uninstall ie7 before you install it. the amd problem is usually based on the computer manufacturers oem version of xp! HP seems to be the worst! This is why I always recommend a reinstall for OEM machines, using a microsoft OEM disk not a manufacturer created OEM disk!

I have put it on my AMD machine which is a custom build and no real problems yet.

I to have installed SP3 on many AMD machines and not one proplem. Might just be lucky so far.
