    on my desktop, which serves as storage. it has better video card than my laptop, but only that. it has crt monitor, and i think like it's falling to pieces now. i'm saving up money to buy a new one.

    but i use vista on my laptop. xp3 is still good imo. it's still the popular in internet cafes.

    Why?
    ...
    Windows XP SP3 is much more secure than previous versions. It contains a number of updates and patches to vulnerabilities. All it does is improve the security of your system.

    It's because SP3 accidentally his computer thus the hate for SP3.
    It's obviously SP3 fault, not his or anyone elses.

    SP3 was nowhere near the shift that SP1 to SP2 was. Indeed I am not sure I could spot it without the obvious signs (right click and my computer and all that). Similarly SP2 is not supported any more so enjoy the virus ridden wasteland that that will become (I hope someone does step up like they did for 98 and co but I do not hold out that much hope).

    Anyhow most mobile phone companies have horrifically badly coded software (I single out nokia and sony for this one) and adobe are not much better.

    application configuration is incorrect sounds like some "necessary" services were disabled or some of the tweaks- uninstall- reinstall or repair install if you have it.
    Likewise the "portable" photoshop is likely some cracked version and given how bad some of the cracks (adding permanent hosts file entries......) were that I can see playing up here.

    I am almost 100% certain (99.999%) that the issue is with your use of the computer rather than the fact that you're running SP3.

    Also, there's no such thing as a portable version of Photoshop. What you have is a hacked and pirated copy (Not saying there's anything wrong with piracy, but if you can't do it right then don't do it).


    Given the state of your system, I would say to back up the files you need, format and reinstall Windows XP SP3 and be careful of where you download stuff from.
