I tried to instal above update as per Maurice's suggestion but it failed each time I tried.I haven't installed SP3 as I'm fully satisfied with SP2,my work running smoothly without SP3.Moreover I intend to buy SP3 locally and decived not to download.The only problem is I fail to achieve 100% secunia score because of MDAC 2.x showing insecure.I've got component checker installed.Can I afford to neglect MDAC UPDATE or should I update after installing win xp sp3.Error message - installation of KB Q832483 failed,an error occured,look at C:\WINDOWS\ dahotfix.log which I didn't look up.Can Maurice or anyone help ?

Quite right. Here's a short article about SP3 that may help, http://news.cnet.com/8301-10789_3-9924689-57.html .

Thanks Fred,I read the article U suggested,little help from the same I suppose.I would have to go through MS articles what to do before installing SP3,if I get the references.Since my compu is an assembled one at a place far far away from my present residence and there's no address where SP2 was loaded;actually it was a gift.Moreover the original owner is out of India with no contact number left.Already I had to spend a lumpsome to change all except monitor to configure it and I manually installed 137 updates.Before configuration,the compu went dead about 30 times,each time xp reinstalled from Jan 2009 when I first started to handle a compu at 57 yrs of age.Now it is running smoothly and I heard from some of my friends that SP2 has some features lacking in SP3.This made me afraid to upgrade though I don't know to what extent this is true.This compu is essential for me for my teaching purpose in the college so that I don't want it to become out of order again.Please feel free to inform me if U have any further suggestions.

There is no need to buy a disk - this link gives U the FULL package which U can save to disk or your desktop.

Just read it carefully - there is/was an issue with AMD chips which is all explained in the link.

I have no words to convey my gratitude to you,Maurice.Whatever I did to increase my secunia score from 70% to 98% is mostly ur credit.A novice like me couldn't have done so without ur help.

I have some more questions to ask you regarding upgrade,preferably not in open forum lest MS blocks the pc as it had done in a few cases I personally know,that's why email required.

Please edit your post & remove your email address - I have the details but spammers would like it too!

Hi Sanjib;

I am pleased to hear how well you have got on with your computer. Let me say that Maurice is very capable of helping you. My link to the Cnet article was ment to be an informative overview, not an instructional guide.


My best wishes;

Fred

Is Maurice still out of station ? Can anyone say? I'm out of contact with Maurice for a long time,with lots of questions which,I suppose,only Maurice can help.
