    Ok, so I just got the approval to put SP3 on all of my machines (360 some).

    Who has had problems with it, and what did you do to fix it?

    When did you have the problem?


    I'm curious as to all ythe problems I'll have monday when I come into work.

    the EASIEST way to roll it out is to install free M$ WSUS software.

    that being said we rolled it out to 200 folks pretty much non-invasively over a month period doing them in small groups through WSUS.

    We aren't allowed to use SUS yet.

    I've got Shavlik, but I'm having problems with my test-group getting it to install.

    it works well if all machines are on Pro. (we have maybe 20 people in my office that run pro...everyone else is on home...yeah no AD...welcome to my world).

    You don't know who I work for, do you?

    I'll give you a hint: You paid for it, just like you paid for the hour of overtime I am going to be working tonight.
