Service Pack 2

  @Home 13:54 13 May 2004

I have put XP service pack 2(beta) in my PC and now it is doing a few strange things. Re-starting on its own, Starting up with the sound disabled.

So can I uninstall it? If so How?
There is no mention of it in my Add/Remove List.

If I cannot will system restore get shut of it.

System restore should solve your problem.

Thanks for the reply.

Is that the only option?

System will not restore to any point before I put service Pack 2 In.

Can anyone help me get it out?

When you go to Control Panel/ Add or remove programs/ put a tick in the box at the top, show Updates. you will then find ot listed, and you can uninstall. However your problem doesn't sound as though SP2 is at fault. Try running Spybot & Ad-aware, or get Avast virus cleaner from click here. I think SP2 is really good.

Do you think it was a good idea to subject your system to a major change using *beta* code without knowing how to get out of a disaster situation?

general feeling on this seems to be wait for the final released version

I think the idea is u report probs (Re-starting on its own, Starting up with the sound disabled)to Microsoft. A good lesson to others thinking of puttin beta softy on pc. Have a word with Microsoft.

rawprawn - Thanks for that.

unfortunately that didn't work either - Looks like a complete reinstall. Not again!!!!!!!!

You should have waited as they are going to give SP2 CD away in big Comp shops like PCworld all 200mb's of it, what a shambles it's bigger than the entire Win98se OS by two. click here
