Microsoft will officially retire Windows XP SP2 on July 13. After that date, although it will continue to provide security updates for XP SP3, it will stop issuing patches for the older SP2.

It's time to Upgrade to Service Pack 3! It can be downloaded here

If you're updating just one computer, please visit Windows Update at http://update.microsoft.com - it's a smaller file.
