A while back SP3 sneaked in a download, but I never let it install. The only way I knew it was there was when I went to check for updates at Microsoft, and it said it was downloaded waiting to be installed. Of course, I couldn't find it anywhere to remove it. However, when I did a Search (with the little dog) there were tons of files. Can I simply delete each file the search found without deleting files that may be needed for something else? Or is it better to just leave it where ever it is so it won't be constantly pestering me to download it?
I don't dare let SP3 install because I have AMD Athlon, and do not need all the headaches it would cause me. Needless to say, I have disabled automatic updates, but go to Microsoft regularly to check for updates.
