XP Service Pack Serviced by Ex-Microsoftie

XP SP3 has wreaked a fair bit of havoc on a small number of machines. Apparently, some HP (and some other AMD) machines can't stop rebooting when SP3 is installed.

Looks like an ex-Microsoft employee still has a soft spot for end users and just released a fix that can be installed before the service pack, eliminating the incessant boots. Our hats should all be tipped in Jesper Johansson's direction.
