I have just counted 36 Hotfixes that have been installed from MS onto my system. How many do you have?

(I know this isn't the most riveting of threads but its the best I could think of)

I find the best way with these Hotfixes is to set a restore point, and using regedit export registry.

In Xp home:
Hkey_local_machine/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Uninstall, and remove the hotfix entries.

This keeps the amount of things listed in "add remove programs" within reasonable limits.

DON'T do this if you have any doubts about what you are doing!
