Service Packs

Dear Computer Lady,

I have windows service pack 3 installed. Question is this, on my control panel service pack 2 is still there. Can I safely remove it to clean up some space, or is it best to leave it there?

I enjoy your site very much, I have learned so very much from reading all the issues. Thank you so much. I have Microsoft windows XP home edition version 2002 service pack 3.



Dear Kay,

No, you should not remove service pack 2. According to Microsoft, you need to have the 2nd service pack installed in order to install the 3rd service pack. This way, they didn’t have to include everything that was in SP2 all over again in SP3.

I am glad to see that you are installing your windows updates and service packs. They are important to keeping your computer running securely.
