I am currently upgrading from SP2-->SP3 and I am up to the bit "Running Processes After Install" and it is stuck I have disabled my anti-virus's (Norton 360 2.0 @ PC Tools Spyware Doctor 2008) like it said on another forum. What can I do? Would It be coz I have Vista Transformation Pack???

Try to re-install the Sp3 installation as normal but this time when you get to the "Running Processes After Install", right away,open the Task manager (Crt&Alt&Del) and end the process 'shmgrate.exe'. Which is the 'Windows NT User Data Migration Tool'. For some odd reason it will stop the SP3 from completing. This error was supposed to be fixed by now are you sure you have the final SP3 build and not a beta version?

 

Anyways, do as I said and it should go through the complete process afterwards make sure you re-boot your system, if it doesn't do it on it's own.

 

Good Luck!
