Windows XP Users: Beware Today

On July 10, 2008, at 10:00 AM PST (18:00 PM BST) , Microsoft will begin to "push" distribution of Windows XP Service Pack 3 via "Automatic Updates". (Link)

There have previously been occurrences of compatibility issues, particularly in PCs with AMD processors.

If you use XP, I suggest you turn off your automatic updates, use the Service Pack Blocker toolkit, or - if you're prepared to risk installing SP3 - back up your work!
