Our bottom line recommendation is that, at this time anyways, you only upgrade your Windows XP installation to SP3 if it’s new – ie.
As with previous service packs, no product key is requested or required when installing Windows XP SP3 using the update package available through Microsoft Update.

to prevent you from having to download a gazillion updates.
This is especially true if you’re deploying multiple Windows installations, which is typical in a corporate environment.

If a TEMP variable doesn't exist, contact your system administrator for assistance. In Windows Explorer, verify that the folder you noted in step 4 exists on a noncompressed disk partition that has at least 50 MB of free space: -- If the folder doesn't exist, create it: Right-click the drive, choose New Folder from the menu, and type the folder name you noted in step 4 (for example, Temp). Move font files, excluding those installed by Windows, from the Fonts folder to the folder you created in step 1. Move a few of the fonts from step 3 back to the Winnt/Fonts folder.
