Well, put another tick in the column of "don't get anything new from Microsoft unless you absolutely must..."


I've had some issues with SP3 myself, though they were relatively benign compared to what you're describing.

Being an advocate of 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' I didn't install SP3. I need to do a HD wipe and am wavering on installing Linux on my primary PC. Another snowstorm might provide the motivation.

Yes. But even though SP3 seemed to cause me no end of grief, installing it did appear to fix an annoying firefox problem i was having. It was taking forever to load on reboot, but after installing SP3 it started almost immediately (after the usual loading processes).
