    My PC keeps trying to install servace pack 3, Im quite happy to let it, but the install process gets half way through and and cant go no further due to errors I didnt write the errors down as there were heeps of them, the install has failed three times so far, Justy wondered if enyone else had this problem.

    No i haven't, but my next step would be to download it manually and try and install it in safe mode. It's probably a 3rd party application that is running in the background preventing it.

    I had the same problems with SP3 failing to install.

    It turned out (in my case) that there is a hotfix that prevents it from installing. Have a look through all the installed updates for KB925877 and if its there remove it.
