Windows XP SP3

By arb773 ·
Microsoft auto installed XP SP3. It failed, giving the msg 'Access denied'. It supposedly uninstalled SP 3, but it stated XP may not run properly. What an understatement. It messed up my DSL connection to the point that the service rep could not believe it. I even restored to a previous startup with no improvement. Did anyone else have this happen?

Delete the old partition and create a new partition, format the hard drive (high level not a low level format)
and reinstall windows xp and all relevent applications.
