I would have thought the obvious solution would be to install MS Service Pack Three or SP3 as it is commonly known

It is free and highly recommended.

Or you can go to MS Update and get it there with will be a smaller download as youwill only download what you need.,

Sorry tried to keep question 'short'.
He cannot connect to internet as the Dongle will only work on a OS with SP3.
Catch 22 situation I think.
Thanks for your reply.

So find someone that has SP3 on disk. There must be loads of them around. I have two of them.
