So far I've installed it on 4 machines including 1 Windows 2000 Server with no ill effects. One machine appeared to be stuck after login so I just did a CtrlAltDel and logged out and logged in and back to normal.

Nothing real tangible yet, but that warm fuzzy feeling that I don't need to stuff in anymore Post-SP2 HotFixes. yech

Personally, I find the HFNetcheck tool cumbersome to use and often provides unhelpful information about what HotFixes are there or should have been there.

FINALLY, just finished downloading and installing Service Pack 3 after many many hours of downloading on 56k. I downloaded the full install because I want to burn it to cd along with my most used apps and drivers. I figure it's time to update my important stuff on cd, the last time I did this was around the time of SP2's release. :)

Ive had it installed on my system since the day it was released, and I havent had any issues with it yet.

Does SP3 include Internet Explorer 6?

Starscream 08-11-02 10:35 PM


Just checked my IE version and it's 5.00.3etcetc.

Okay, thanks. I'll still be using Mozilla for most of my everyday browsing. But now I know to download IE6 separately.
