For those of you still running Windows XP and wondering if you need this service pack: Service Pack 3 (SP3) does not contain any new items... with one notable exception. SP3 does include Network Access Protection (NAP) to help organizations that use Windows XP to take advantage of new features in the Windows Server 2008 operating system. But this does not apply to home users.
If you have an HP computer that runs an AMD CPU, you should not install SP3 before HP offers a patch: you'll be left with an endless rebooting system if you do!
If your Windows XP SP2 system is up to date with Microsoft patches, and working fine, there's no pressing need to get SP3.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
