    For those of you who are interested in using the most currently available SP3 upgrade for Windows XP, this link will provide you with the file for the correct version - 5.1.2600.5508

    and this URL at the Microsoft site

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...99-12af-42b2-aab1-b969a62c68a7&DisplayLang=en

    are still providing the file for version 5.1.2600.3311, which is the original SP3 RC2 upgrade.

    I upgraded today from version 5.1.2600.3311 to version 5.1.2600.5508 in both of my desktops. I have no idea what's new or different between the 2 versions, but I have noticed a snappier response.

    (This is for information only and is not intended to encourage users to make the upgrade from SP2.)
