XP SP3 Support

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008 by | Filed Under: Security Help

XP SP3 Support

I’m sure every single one of you know about the Windows XP Service Pack 3 update, right? We here at WorldStart have gotten a lot of phone calls and e-mails about the release in the last week or so. Your comments range from how smoothly the install went to how the Service Pack completely crashed your computer and so on.

Now, I don’t want to scare you with horror stories of XP SP3 failed installs, but it’s important to realize that problems do occur. Microsoft tries very hard to make sure the install of any update or Service Pack goes smoothly for all computers, but with Windows installed on millions of computers worldwide, it becomes a difficult challenge. So, the question is: “What do you do if your Windows XP SP3 install fails?”

First of all, don’t panic! The worst thing you can do in a situation like that is to just start clicking away, trying to fix a problem you don’t know very much about. If you do that, you could cause even more damage to your system, which will make it harder to repair.

If you come across a problem, there is help available! Microsoft doesn’t advertise it, but they do offer free chat, e-mail and phone support for issues such as this. That’s right, you can call Microsoft directly if you have any trouble with your XP SP3 install.

Here’s the telephone number you can use to contact Microsoft for free XP SP3 support: 866-234-6020.
