[BR_forum] XP SP3

Postby GTISDALE at tisdalecpa... » Fri Sep 05, 2008 1:35 pm

Microsoft installed XP Professional Service Pack 3 on my machines last night.
All seems to work OK except that the custom settings that were tied to my print drives were erased and set back to default values. I was able to reset them manually to the custom settings and the changes have stuck.
Anyone else experienced this problem?

SP3 reset a bunch of stuff in windows. It reset a bunch of my default file associations. It will also cause certain programs to no longer work, so check for updates if you notice this.

I have had a couple of pc's that would not connect to the internet after installing SP3.
One issue was with Zonealarm Security Suite - patch from Zone Labs fixed this.
The other issues with no connection, didn't have time to figure out, just uninstalled the service pack and went forward
