    I've never experienced anything involving Microsoft that couldn't eventually be fixed...or a workaround that resolved an issue. Until now, that is. I've been running Windows XP Home since it came out and have kept up with the regular Windows updates over all those years. About six months ago I tried to install SP-3 (when I felt it was safe to do so!) and, on install, it stops dead in its tracks - locked on to the HPFUD50.dll file. An error message indicates "Windows can't open this file" and the entire install is reversed. I've had an ongoing issue with at least three Microsoft technicians, via Email and telephone calls and - to date - no one can figure out why this is happening or a way around it. If anyone, anywhere can give me any assistance I would be forever grateful. Thanks!

    Welcome to the Lounge.

    First, I would like to point out that the default font size is fine for normal posting. The other sizes are for effect. Using the larger font size is akin to shouting in all caps and is not considered proper forum manners. Thanks for understanding.

    Can you tell us if you are installing from Windows Update or if you have SP3 on a disk and are installing from that ?? That can make a difference. You might also try downloading the SP3 file from here to your desktop and installing from there.

    Let us know how you make out. HTH
