Windows XP's SP3 causing more problems with some AMD-based computers


This is getting silly on Microsoft’s part. Those SP3 updates we’ve been talking about for Windows XP might do some more harm than good. Some users have reported that the update causes their computers to endlessly reboot, something a few updates for Windows 95 did over a decade ago.

Intel users appear to be in the clear, the problem affects computers with AMD chipsets primarily. Some Intel machines have the problem, but not many.

So far Microsoft is mum on the issue, though we’re confident that it has a team working on the issue day and night, fueled by Sparks.
