Windows XP SP3 Hotfix

Early this month, I reported that Symantec had addressed the issues customers using Norton 2008 experienced when installing Windows XP Service Pack 3 or Windows Vista Service Pack 1.

Based on a post by dickw at LandzDown Forum, I learned that Microsoft has provided a hotfix for users who have installed Windows XP Service Pack 3 with an antivirus application still running during the installation, which could result in Device Manager not showing any devices and/or and Network Connections not showing any network connections.

The hotfix is available at Update for Windows XP (KB953979).

Before installing SP3, I recommend reviewing the following:

Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
