Problems updating windows xp service pack 3

EDIT After killing the reboot, this is the error that pops up: STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x8A187118, 0x8A18728C, 0x80604438) EDIT2 I have run Memtest86, and it reported 0 errors.See this article about Stop: 0x000000F4, where the Stop parameters seem to be similar to yours.

All this was discussed, at length, in the above thread.

Excluding, of course, this most recent one in 2017.

I'm not sure I trust it though, particularly if its a homebrewed update rather than something that officially came from Microsoft: » ··· _pack_3/Is the safer route is using the 2008-era SP3 update, then have Windows SP3 search for and automatically install the updates I approve? 3rd party sites often times slip adware (sometimes worse stuff) into their downloads.

In large software applications such as office suites, operating systems, database software, or network management, it is not uncommon to have a service pack issued within the first year or two of a product's release.

Installing a service pack is easier and less error-prone than installing many individual patches, even more so when updating multiple computers over a network, where service packs are common.
