I heard a lot of chatter about XP SP3 causing all kinds of problems as well like random reboots and crashes. Its just how they roll.
Yeah. Someone told me I shouldn't install SP3, but I did.

Someone previously suggested ordering CD for SP3. I've not been able to find it, other than a site for slip showing how to slipstream it to a CD. I'd rather have the CD. Anybody know offhand how to find a way to order the CD vs spending a lot of time in download mode?

I did that update today and when it restarted all of my desktop icons where gone. Thanks MS! So after 2 more re-boots they came back.

Had the same problem. Setting ZA Internet security to Medium makes it work.

I just didn't update. How ironic to send you a security update and then you have to lower your security in your firewall to make it work.

The minimum processor speed for SP3 is 233. Mine is only 150.

It's quite impossible to detect every possible effect new code will have on an existing environment. All software is written by humans and therefore flawed from the start. I use the hardware firewall in my router and don't have to mess with zonealarm or other updates messing up my firewall.
