    Only SP1/SP2, but who knows, maybe they'll make a new one.

    i would only try it on a test PC as not all the patches will likely work on all PCs.

    The Windows XP SP3 Preview Pack #2 mentioned by toploader and hadi is available from Softpedia http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/Windows-XP-Service-Pack-3-Preview.shtml but they say this about it :

    "This download may include additional applications bundled with the software's installer file. Third-party applications bundled with this download may record your surfing habits, deliver advertising, collect private information, or modify your system settings. Pay close attention to the end user license agreement and installation options.

    You are advised to run Ad-Aware or similar programs after installing this product."

    I have no idea if this is anything to be concerned about in practice or what, if any, third part programs are involved but thought it best to let you know about it.

    hi bch - if what softpedia says is true then i'm amazed they have it on their site - both softpedia and majorgeeks are classed as reputable sites - if this download is spyware ridden that would damage their credibility as portals for safe download.
