    At SP2 but says no high priority updates available (WIN XP Home)

    I am in the process of reloading Windows XP Home edition on a friend's computer. I formatted the HD and then loaded and activated Windows XP Home. I did several updates and then it said to do Service Pack 2. I did this but now when I go to Windows Updates, it comes back with the statement that there are no High Priority updates available. Shouldn't it be that Service Pack 3 needs to be installed?

    Turned the system off over night. When I started it this morning, I went to Windows Update, it searched for updates for a couple of minutes, then brought up that there was one update - KB898461. I downloaded and installed it. Then it said to continue which I did and now it is showing that Service Pack 3 needs to be installed. Obviously a good night's sleep gave the system enough energy to find the proper updates. LOL.

    I'd still recommend you download the version whose link is in my <post:=725,951>post 725,951</post:> particularly if you have to install SP-3 on more than one machine or there is a chance you'll have to re-install it on the current machine.

    I already have SP3 on a disk and I use it rather than going through the download process.
