Default Re: O/T computer help desk thread


are you on a dial up or sattelite connection? that could be your problem. on slower connections to the net downloading such a huge filecan cause problems and lost packets. thus causing your finished download and install to hang.

if you would like i can download it from my msdn account and send to you on a disk.

just let me know.

Also, i have done quite a few systems whos problems with sp3 were like yours and i found a fresh install of windows along with sp3 to work just fine. I know it takes some time and all. but if you keep good backups and dont mind doing a refresh on your hard drive once a year or more than its an easy solution. but usually the last solution i prefer to do for a client.

I never knew i looked so good until i was diagnosed with ms.
