    Do you have Microsoft Office 2003 or Microsoft Office 2000?

    SP3 for 2003 can be downloaded from here.

    SP3 for 2000 can be downloaded from here.

    Download and save SP3 for your version of Office, turn off your antivirus program, install SP3, then restart your computer.

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    I have one other question. Are you sure that the SP3 upgrade is for Microsoft Office and not for Windows XP?

    If it is for Windows XP, download the full-size file from here.

    Make sure to read this article first.

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    You classify yourself as a beginner, so you should consider having whatever upgrade your computer needs done by someone who knows what he/she is doing.

    This is what you said in your original post:

    i have an icon from microsoft.saids it has updates to install for microsoft office, update service pack 3.

    I've had some people confuse XP with Office when posting comments, so I just wanted to make sure by covering all the bases.

    Since there's a SP3 for Office 2000 and Office 2003, I wasn't sure which version you are using.

    My name is Frank.
