    I'd like to reformat my hard drive and install XP Pro. Does MS still
    support it to the extent that it will provide Service Pack updates,
    drivers, Security updates, etc.? Also, is there an SP3 for XP Pro?

    As long as SP3 is installed, support, (i.e. updates), continues until
    April, 2014.

    Service Pack 1a For XP

    Service Pack 2 For XP
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...BE-3B8E-4F30-8245-9E368D3CDB5A&displaylang=en

    Service Pack 3 For XP.
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...A8-5E76-401F-BE08-1E1555D4F3D4&displaylang=en

    (Note: If your installation disk has SP1, install Sp1a or SP2 and then
    SP3. If the installation disk has SP1a on it, you can skip SP2 and go
    directly to SP3).
