Solved Is win xp sp3 compatiable with win xp media center edition v

May 10, 2017 at 17:41:08
Specs: Windows 7
Read that a "The procedure entry point GetLogicalProcessorInformation could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll" problem is due to the fact thatSP2 version of Win XP does not support the 'GetLogicalProcessorInformation'.

I wonder if it is safe to upgrade Win XP Media Center Edition, version 2002, SP2 by downloading the win xp SP3 and installing?
Thanks for your help!!

✔ Best Answer
Do you mean adding Service Pack 3 (SP3) to WinXP MCE? Sure, just download & install. It's a 316MB download. You should have gotten it as part of Windows Update many years ago.

I am doing this work for a friend who is hanging on with this dinosaur!! It is not my computer to decide whether to go to SP3 should the system crash for any reason. I will recommend that he copies all important files first and then decide on SP3. I did find an old version of Avast for the SP2 version and it is running well, found 6 viruses!!
thanks so much for recommending the upgrade!

SP3 usually installs without a hassle - it came out in April 2008. Makes me wonder why it didn't install automatically unless the user has turned off updates. It is a well worth while service pack.

These three freebies are good at wrinkling out malware that AV's often miss. Seems they still work on XP. Best run in the order given:

AdwCleaner:
https://toolslib.net/downloads/view...
(blue "Download Now" button on right).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Clean" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
https://www.malwarebytes.org/junkwa...
(blue Download button).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
(use the "Free Download" button rather than the "Buy Now" button).
After the install go to "Settings > Protection". Under Scan Options move the "Scan for rootkits" slider over to On and Run the Threat Scan. Quarantine anything it finds.

At the very least run ADWCleaner because this small file doesn't need installing and it focusses on browser related malware which AV's don't usually look for. That type of malware can cause many issues.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
