It is safe?

In reply to: Windows SP3

Your post didn't ask a question but I assume you are asking if it is safe to download and install SP3.

Generally yes. Do you have a Compaq/HP system with an AMD processor? if so, you should visit the HP web site first and search for details on your model to see if any patch is available/required.

Just to clear things up

In reply to: Windows SP3

Just to clear things up, the AMD CPU issues were specific to HP/Compaq systems and was the fault of HP.
