XP Anti-Virus Complaint Cured

Some of you who downloaded XP SP3 got a little surprise: corrupted registries. The problem is that security software such as Norton anti-virus wants to use the same registry entries that the service pack is trying to delete.

The result? Wireless connections that no longer connect and random restarts. (I thought this was just a feature built into all desktop versions of Windows.)

Microsoft has a fix now, and you can get all the details right here.
