    1&2. The only thing I can say that is close to this is that sp3 through auto update doesn't like tuneup on some systems. The '/Kernel=TUKernel.exe' within the boot.ini seems to be the problem (can also make some arks balk.)

    SP3 should be a simple and easy update for most XP users.. If you find yourself experiencing unusual problems and you can't find a fix, you might consider rolling back to SP2.
