What's new in Windows XP SP3

Posted on Friday, October 19 2007 @ 02:20:47 CEST by

Microsoft is getting ready to release the third service pack for Windows XP. This update will feature a bunch of security updates and will also add the ability to install XP without a serial number.

Here's a look at some of the new features:
  • Descriptive Security Options UI – this makes the Security Centre a bit more intelligible and intuitive to try to prevent security problems caused by accidental misconfiguration
  • Enhanced security for Administrator and Service policy entries – this is an enhancement to System Center Essentials, specifically for SP3
  • Black Hole Router Detection – this detects routers which are silently discarding network packets, and is enabled by default in SP3
  • Microsoft Kernel Mode Cryptographic Module – this module (FIPS.SYS) is a FIPS 140-1 cryptographic module which runs as a kernel mode export driver
  • Network Access Protection – the NAP Client is network-based policy enforcement platform currently running on Windows Vista and Windows 2008 (beta), and will now be available in XP SP3
  • Windows Product Activation – this gives you the functionality to install Windows XP without having to enter the product key, as with Windows Vista and Windows Server 2003 SP2.
