I have a genuine Windows XP Pro license. However I have an ancient disk, and every time I install it after a major upgrade, it takes FOREVER and leaves me wide open to security risks during the live updates etc.
Is there a trusted SP3 updated DVD Windows torrent with bells and whistles like winzip, codecs, updated chipset drivers and all of the other free utls everyone uses preinstalled installed?
I know there are 100's around, but figure 95% of them are trojan tastic.
I went to Microsoft.com and frankly, something inside me died when I went looking for anything resembling an updated version of Windows I can download, mount and use with my key.
While 95% may contain trojans or other security risks, the other 5% have so many unknown custom modifications that you never know how it will impact your particular configuration or needs. Its best to start clean and do your own changes.
