    Hi Guy's
    I just reinstalled Wind XP Pro on my Dell Optilex 170L desktop & all the right drivers , but my XP Disc is only serv pac 1 & most software updates seem to have a problem with it ..

    Question is what is the best & cheapest way to add the s/p 2&3 to my PC ?
    This PC is my back up & I am in no hurry to bring it up to @ least SP 2 should I just leave it on auto updates or what ?

    Cheers Ozi

    SP3 is all inclusive of prior updates including SP2. Save file and burn to CD for possible future use.

    Go here:

    or

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...a8-5e76-401f-be08-1e1555d4f3d4&displaylang=en

    Same result.
