Solved fiefox cannot download outlook

Specs: Windows xpsp2, pentium 4 3gh
I have 2 PCs , 1 a Pentium 4 3Gh and the other AMD 1.33 Ghz. Both running Windows XP SP2.
I have not upgraded anything in any of them.While using the Pentium 4 I use to get Email from MS urging me to change to outlook. After a few months I did what they wanted. I can read my e-mails in Outlook. My only complain is that it keeps refreshing 2 or 3 times whenever I click on a e-mail.
My problem is when I tried to read my e-mail in the other PC , a line of words here and another further down and so on till the endless bottom. I cannot read my e-mails.
I tried to up grade my SP2 to SP3 as they suggested. When I installed SP3 , at the end of installation a message came ot saying it cannot install because it cannot find The procedure entry point.
Then they suggested to me to use an upgraded version of IE. When I did that my system Hanged.
If something goes wrong with my Pentium 4 I will not be able to read my e-mails anymore. Can I revert back to Hot Mail.
Any solution to my problem will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Download SP3 directly from Microsoft, do NOT use Windows Update. And save a copy in case you ever need it again:

"they suggested to me to use an upgraded version of IE"

Which version are you running? You should have IE8. Once again, save a copy in case you ever need it again:

"Can I revert back to Hot Mail"

HotMail is going the way of the dodo. You cannot go back:

Just to emphasise one of the above points, IE8 is as far as you can go with XP and it is getting very rickety because it is outdated and can't handle many modern websites. You only get security updates and they die in April 2014.

Once you get sorted consider using Firefox which is kept up to date and is as much like IE as any. You can still keep IE as an alternative browser which is set up for Windows updates while they last.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
