I'm waiting before doing any more Windows Xp security updates till I find out if I am going to be forced to have SP2 which I don't want.

Had terrible problems with system crashes after loading the updates (XP SP2 system) System restore did not work either. Final solution was to short the Cmos jumper, reboot with minimal drivers, reload the updates, and everything is now hunky dory

I have no idea what was wrong - and the cmos clearing is always my last resort (other than starting again with a reformat)

Can you expand on this “short the Cmos jumper” as I have not heard of it and would like to know more. Maybe you could point me to a reference – Thanks.

next to the cmos battery on the m/b you will see 2 pins, and next to them 2 small solder points. Temporarily take a jumper from elsewhere on the board and place over the 2 pins for about 6 seconds (put the jumper back to its original place). This should have cleared the set up memory to its manufacturers default setting. (You could also place a paperclip across the 2 solder points, but I prefer to use a jumper)

This is a good stand by when you run out of the other ideas.
