    I am helping a friend with their computer. It had never been updated and was full of trojans and spyware. I managed to get everything cleaned out (unless there is a Rootkit). I started windows updates. SP2 got to cleanup and hung. I managed to get past it and then downloaded everything including SP3. All seems fine. When I look at the download history it says SP2 failed. It says to re-download updates that failed. I don't think that is a good idea under these circumstances. What do you think?

    I think SP3 may include past service packs so if SP3 has installed ok it should include SP2? Not positive on this though?
