Specs: Windows XP, 2.109 GHz / 2815 MB
My friend has a computer about 8 years old. It was never updated with WinXP Service Pack 2. I found this out when he asked me to install "Kaspersky Internet Security 2011". It required Service Pack 2. I tried to download and install Service Pack 3, buttt, to install it, you had to have Service Pack 2 (that's MicroShaft for ya...). Is there any good and trusty place to download Service Pack 2? Thanks for any info.

You can also buy the cd for future installations or slip streaming in the future.

You do NOT need to install SP2 before installing SP3.

I thing Micjlink that if the system has no Service Packs or just SP1 then SP2 or SP1a must be installed before SP3.

I suspect that is becasue SP1a contained a update that removed the MS Java Virtual Machine as a result of Microsoft's dispute with Sun Micro Systems. . SP2 probably contains the code but it was left out of SP3 on the not unreasonable assumption that it was a waste of space to keep inserting code to remove something that no longer existed So in order to remove the Java Virtual Machine, an earlier update must installed before SP3.
