If any of you has faced the problem of infinite reboots of AMD based PCs after installing the Windows XP Service Pack 3 by Microsoft, Jesper Johansson just released a Visual Basic Script that will check if the computer where you want to install the Service Pack is an AMD based one, if yes the IntelPPM driver (responsible for the issue) will be disabled and the computer should be ready to accept the SP3 without problems.

Here you can find additional information, and here you can find the VBScript file.
