Nope. SP3 contains everything from SP2 that's needed. IE7 will have to be installed separately, though.

You can find downloadable ISO (CD-Rom image) files on the Micro$haft website, which is marginally better than using Windoze Updates...!

Once you've finished there will be loads of other updates - but I think there's a slipstream ISO file somewhere with them all in.

Would STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you install IE7 and keep it updated whether you use it or not.

Some version of IE must be on your computer for a whole bunch of other stuff to work, and if it's there and vulnerable to newer malware, your whole system is vulnerable, even if you don't think you ever turn it on.

Regardless of what version is on your computer, IE will be updated automatically along with the other Windows updates you should be getting. As long as you're not using it, it doesn't make much difference whether you like IE7 better than IE4 - IE7 is more secure.

Thanks John, Ok, It's staying much as I loathe the thing!!Also I'm losing my Mudcat Cookie all the time at the moment.After resetting it,it's just not there when I return here to the Forum.
Just in the process of doin' a Ad-Aware total scan and it seems to me, seein' as I seem to be running a wee bit slower than normal it's time to throw everything away and start anew!!!Who said "Life get's tedious, don't it"???
As Aye,
Phil.

Phil -

Mudcat doesn't have (and doesn't really need) a "security certificate" so it can only give you a "temporary cookie" unless you put it into your browser as a "trusted site." The temporary cookie will go away when you leave the site, or when you close the browser.

In IE, you click Tools | Internet Options and then choose the "Privacy" tab. Click the button marked "Sites" and put "mudcat.org" in the little box, click Allow, and the cookie should stay in place (unless you "delete cookies" intentionally).

I don't use other browsers, so you'll need to poke around to find where to do it, or find someone who can tell you.
