I have XP. Got a windows update today.. Wanted me to install service pack 3... Chills went down my spine... I remember on my old computer, also
XP, I install sp2 and NOTHING worked.. It was a nightmare... Got it out and all was fine again.. This computer came with sp2 but the thought of
allowing sp3 anywhere near it scares the bejeebers out of me... That little notice saying, Back up you HD first.... *shudder*
I don't think so....
Are my fears unreasonable??
I have heard it causes more problems that it fixes.
So I have avoided downloading it, too.
Thanks.. Thought I was just being paranoid..
I successfully updated one PC. If you have IE7, uninstall it first, and re-install after the update (otherwise you can't uninstall IE7).
I haven't updated the important PC, simply because it wasn't offered
I've put it on all mine, with no problems whatsoever. It also goes on all units I do any work on.
It's basically just an amalgamation of all updates since sp2, bar one or two minor tweaks, so shouldn't cause any problems. I've certainly not experienced any. (Famous last words!)
I never updated to IE7.. I'll give them a little time to work on it some and after, and only after, I back up all my data, I might install it
Thanks for the info
If you have kept up with all the updates then it shouldn't be a problem... most of it just covers the updates anyway.
IE7 works okay... Though I wouldn't trust the beta for 8 yet.
