SP3 downloads, then stops

Specs: Vista Ultimate, SP1, 3.0Ghz,2Ghz
I downloaded SP3 from Windows Update but it never says its done. Once the progress bar finishes, it just sits there. Am I being inpatient? Usually, the download finishes, then it's validated, then the install starts. It stopped after the download finished with no other status messages.

If you have Vista why are you posting in the XP forum?

Sorry folks! I have another computer with XP on it and that's what I'm referring to. I am upgrading from SP2 to SP3.

Don't use Windows Update. Go to the Microsoft site & download the complete SP3 package, THEN install it.

Turns out you have to be patient! I went to Windows Update again and it picked up from where it left off. SP3 installed successfully.
