    Where are you seeing Version 6 Update 1? In the Add/Remove Programs window?

    Windows XP SP3 is legitimate. You can download and install with no problems.

    As a general idea, tashi (Member of Team Spybot) has posted a sticky which told users that a dated (outdated) version of Java could be a vulnerability for Vundo/Virtumonde infections.

    Updating will patch vulnerabilities in Java, but it does not make it Immune.

    Service Pack 3 should start to download again,I believe.Please see the Restore Declined Updates part in the link above,and see if it helps.

    As far as the java version, I went to teh link you posted and it told me what version I had.

    So you guys agree that SP3 is safe to download, I read on the net it had some problems when it first came out. Do you guys run it?

    Also how could I figure out what memory to buy, is it hard to change in a laptop? I did it on my desktop no problem.

    And thanks for the help so far you guys have been great.

    You're welcome,and drragostea,too,I'm sure.

    Yes,it's a good idea to update to Service Pack 3 if you're relatively certain your computer is free of malware.

    There's a scanner at Crucial you could try:

    is it hard to change in a laptop?
    I've never done that yet,myself,just the desktop.But,this link might help a little:

    Thanks for covering my place Zenobia... (too much chocolate which knocked me out for two days ).

    Sure, if you upgrade to the latest Java version it would be even better (Version 6 Update 7).

    Here's my two cents (thoughts). Usually when something first comes out (Blu-ray Players, Chrome, Service Packs, etc.) it will not be perfect, as patches and tweaks will need to be made. Real life consumer products such as HDTV's and Blu-ray Players was extremely expensive when they first came out, because it was brand new. Now newer, more powerful versions have replaced the original one. These were just examples.

    As a general idea, labtops (handheld PC) are not as "powerful" as desktop themselves, because desktops (box PC) have more potential (such as fit more components). One example would be the Hard Drive capacity and the RAM installed.

    My Sony VAIO is quite old, so I wouldn't bother upgrading the RAM or such... I'll wait for a new PC when the time is right.
