are you saying this download doesn't solve the problem of the AMD processor continually restarting after an SP3 install?
Not at all - I merely pointed out, indirectly, that the problem was likely to occur on OEM computers which have an AMD CPU
and were originally imaged at source with an image created on an Intel based computer.
My own AMD
based computer is home built and the OS installed from a retail CD - hence I experienced no issues. It would seem that the problem only arises on imaged drives as outlined above, but one wonders which CPU
base was used to create the original XP CD and it's successors.
Bottom line, as Arie has posted, installing the patch will do no harm if not required.
