I previously installed Service Pack 1 And as per Microsofts advice ignored Service Pack 1a. A few days ago I checked on their update site and found there were about 17 different upgrades for my system. I duly downloaded them and in my Add/Remove program in Control Panel they show up as Service Pack 2. Since installing these my computer has slowed to a crawl and often LOCKS UP something it has never done under XP. Anyone any ideas whilst I still have some hair on my head PLEASE. Mike B.
PSF, That is great if you can remove the said Hotfix Q811493. I cannot. In the Control Panel/ add/remove etc etc, when that Hotfix is highlighted the option to remove is not present in the highlighted box. Another suggested method also failed. Show hidden files, under Windows look up the Q811483 uninstall file called $NTUninstallQ811493, click and a SPUNINST folder opens, click a file called SPUNINST and a batch program runs intended to uninstall Q811493 but nothing happens. I am stuck with it unless someone can suggest another way to get risd of it?
Sorry PSF!! I just read your response on this on another thread. A restore that far back fills me with horror, AOL7 then AOL8 broadband have been installed since and touch wood AOL8 is great, but only after a week of hell. Perhaps I should sit tight and wait.
I took PSN's advive and uninstalled Q811493 through control panel Add/Remove without any problems. I then restarted my computer and am up and running again without the problems I described. Thank you PSN. Mike
