Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
When I try to install update service pack 3, the access is denied.
It says the service pack 3 installation did not complete. How can I stop the update appearing? Obviously my computer can't load it, so how can I stop it appearing......cheers Heather
When you launch Windows Updates, don't choose the Express Updates but choose Custom. Then when you are presented with Service Pack 3, there is the option to not select it and then choose to continue to see what other updates there are. Personally, I do not recommend Automatic Updates or Express, always do it manually and always select Custom so an unwanted update doesn't get in under the radar and cause further problems. The rule of "if it isn't broken, don't fix it." really goes well with PC's.
