Yup, SP3 is the latest SP for Windows XP, however there willbe quite a few security updates and such since then you'll need. You had best visit the Windows/Microsoft Update site ASAP, let it do a scan and download the updates.

please see the screenshot and tell me what updates i need, i have disabled Automatic Update because i have very slow connection. i want to download all the required updates manually but not one by one, i am in search of a package which will contain all the updates.

please read my first post carefully! again...

They have to be done separately. If you're wanting a complete package, then you'll have to wait until the next service pack is released.

Exactly the point I was trying to make, you can't download them in one package. You should probably try not to be so ungrateful for the reply's, your a new member and you expect help from others. Treat them like it.

I think Service Pack 3 is the last ever Service Pack Microsoft has made for Windows XP and are not going to make any future Service Packs....

You know, I think I remember that, wasn't it basically a BAT file that installed each update one by one in silent mode. Used to take a good coupld of hours when I last remember using it lol
