    i have narrowed it down to a print spooler problem. Before you go razzin me yes i have searched and searched and have come up with many solutions. i have tried them all.

    registry edit. check.
    previous drivers check.
    everything

    so i am doing sfc /scannow. and it tells me i need to insert the windows xp professional sp3 cd.

    i have pounded on microsofts website and dl EVERY sp3 iso i can find and burnt it and still cant get get the right one.

    the user is using xp media center but its asking for an xp pro sp3 disk.

    any ideas or help would be great this thing has been sitting in my office for a week with me working on it and i got to get it out of here

    Silly question, do you have an XP MediaCenter Disc? If you do, does it have SP3 integrated into the install files?
