Lost SP3 windows xp home edition version 2002 how do i get it back or do i need to I have automatic updates turned on when I look at programs beside it ,there no file size? also how do I fix error...


If you mean no file size showing up in "Add / Remove Programs"
thats because it's integrated / uninstallable but registered.

Error: 0x80070005, is that when you access "Microsoft Update"?

As for repairing SP3 Read more here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help/learn-how-to-install-windows-xp-service-pack-3-sp3

and you probably have to go for option:
"Manually installing SP3 using the Microsoft Download Center or a CD"
Good Luck

What to do Microsoft XP Service Pack 3 Error Message Access Denied. Step by step please I,m not to techie inclined.I tried to download after disabling anti virus as Microsoft suggested but still access...


Hello and thank you for using Fixya services.

From the sounds of your issue, it may be that you have malware or a trojan. You can run a scan using this free malware/antivirus protection. I am not sure which antivirus you are currently using but this one is free and has excellent reviews. You will need to uninstall your current antivirus protection first before installing this one.

Malware/trojans can disable your antivirus programs and make it look like everything is running smoothly. This would also block Windows updates. By running a thourall scan with another program, you can get the malware out. Even the best antivirus can be disabled.

Please let me know i I can be of further assistance

You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.
