Updating xp pro to service pack 2
Stack Exchange network consists of 175 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.Visit Stack Exchange I've been asked to update some computers running Windows XP (without any service packs) to Windows XP SP3.
A very handy use for Windows Repair is after a malware infection or other stubborn problems.
The computers don't have an internet connection (only a small intranet) and have never been updated since first install.
Do I need to install SP1a first, then SP2, then SP3, or can I install SP3 immediately?
This usually involves downloading a simple patch that you can get from your software firewall’s manufacturer's website.
If you have a name-brand computer, check the manufacturer's web site and download any software or driver updates they recommend.
