Windows® XP Service Pack 3 RC2 (SP3) includes all previously released updates for the operating system. This update also includes a small number of new functionalities, which do not significantly change customers’ experience with the operating system. This white paper summarizes what is new in Windows XP SP3.
Note: Before you proceed intallaing, you’ll need to uninstall any previous versions of XP SP3 before proceeding with the newest Release Candidate. Similarly you’ll need to uninstall RC2 before you’ll be able to install the final version whenever Microsoft decides to release it. It’s a hassle, I know, but this is a good cure if you’re starting to get a nervous twitch from not running enough pre-release software. It happens to the best of us.
