Question about Computers & Internet
I am currently trying to install Service pack 3 on to my system but everytime I try it always freezes at the same point. At the point it freezes it always says ' running processes after install '. The update just stays at the point and does not finish up.
I have no Anti virus programs running on the computer and the update has been succesful on other computer in my household. I have tried the update in normal mode and in safe mode but this does not make any difference the update stops at the same point.
My system specs are:
Intel Pentium D 950
2GB DDR2 Memory
400GB 7200 SATA rpm Hard Disk
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Would appreciate any help on the situation.

Do one of the following:
If you downloaded SP3 from the website, to install it immediately, click Open or Run and follow the instructions on your screen. To install the program later, click Save and download the installation file to your computer. When you're ready to install the service pack, double-click the file.
If you're installing SP3 from the Service Pack 3 CD, insert the disc into your computer with your current version of Windows XP running, and the Software Update Installation Wizard should automatically appear. If this wizard doesn't appear, click Start, double-click My Computer, right-click your CD or DVD drive, and then click AutoPlay.
On the Windows XP Service Pack 3 page, click Next.
Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.
After the installation is complete, click Finish to restart your computer.
If you disabled your antivirus software, enable it again.
