XP Updates

  iqs 18:09 25 Jan 2010


Never liked updating my OS,to many bad memories from years gone by..
But because I was getting very random BSOD/Fatal errors,I decided to update XP Media Edition SP2.

I downloaded all updates except SP3,a total of 124.

My OS has not so far shown any side effects from the updates,except in event viewer,which list entries for Windows Search Desktop.

I went to uninstall Desktop Search,but was informed that other updates rely on desktop search update.

Is it safe to uninstall it,or is it best to deactivate via services.Also because it has changed the standard search option,will this revert to the original?.

Did not like the updated version and removed it about a year ago.But not sure if it reverts back to the old one or whether I had to do a Microsoft search for it.
