If you ever come across a winxp sp1 install...

Post by Lokey »

Throw it in a tire fire. Or throw linux on it. So it took:

75 updates. Two restarts. Some other things to click on.

SP2. Takes a while, prompt or two restart.

Forget how many or what.

SP3. First dl was corrupt, installer didn't catch. Redownload.
SVCHost berserk bug, crashed a few times. Safemode, 2 prompts, let sit for three hours, done.

42 updates. Restart.

Next time yahoo or facebook change their css/flash/etc reqs, grandmom is going to have to find a new grandson or learn to deal with linux.
