Brian Livingston reports problems with Win XP SP 3

According to today’s edition of Windows Secrets, the well-regarded newsletter from Brian Livingston, there are issues with Windows XP Service Pack 3.

In particular, his Patch Watch columnist, Susan Bradley, cites registry fixes needed to make SP3 work with Norton AntiVirus, and never-ending reboots when you install SP3 onto PCs with AMD processors.

Susan’s column explains that this latter problem has to do with SP3 installing Intel drivers onto AMD machines (oops), and she tells you how to fix it.
