    Windows XP SP3

    Advertisement



    I downloaded the xp sp3 update last night and so far I have experienced no Desktop Manager issues, my system actually seems to run much smoother and faster. All of my plasmic software is noticibly faster as well. Any negative results?

    Your not kidding. My computer does run faster and smoother than before. I actually like how responsive it feels.

    Yeah I was going to update my desktop since I'm not ready to run Vista on it yet but I'm going to wait for the final version that way I can put Vista Ultimate on my laptop and the other computer that I am building.

    Re: Windows XP SP3

    I like it a lot, it seems to have cleaned up the conflicts that arise after a year of hard core screwing around. Adobe Photoshop is much quicker to load and I can see it work much faster with large (50+ MB) images as compared to before. Also there is supposed to be a lot of network and security upgrades that people on a network might be able to comment on. Its like I changed the oil, plugs, and air filter...

    WOW READ THE LINK BELOW!

    Re: Windows XP SP3

    what is this? Is it something like Vista, but different? Do you have to pay for it?
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?
