I was told to uninstall sp2 since it may be causing the explorer shutdown problems I'm having but I can't find the program to uninstall it. If I do a search it shows as being on my computer but if I click on those linnks explorer shuts down. I used the commands suggested on the miicrosoft site for add/remove, hidden nt dervice pack uninstaller, and the system restore process. Each time I got the message file could not be found. I did uninstall some of the updates but I'm still having explorer shut down when I click on any soyweare or security programs. I have no XP cd because my computer came with XP installed. Any Suggestions
jan, virus, syware and malware. My computer runs fine except for this problem with windows that's why it was suggested I uninstall sp2 but as I said it doesn't show up anywhere that I could uninstall it. When I do a search it shows up but not with a link I can use
Disconnect from the net, remove every update listed under Hotfixes manually (reboot when instructed, it will take a while to complete the process but worth doing), run a complete antivirus and spyware scan (ewido recommended click here), install SP2 you previously downloaded, go to Windows update and get all the post SP2 updates.
I deleted some hotfixes a few days ago but not all of them but none show up on my add remove list I have also used the uninstall code C:windows$NtServicePackUninstall$spuninstspuninst.exe on run whihc csme up as fike couldn't be found but when I go to microsoft it shows I am running sp2 as does my sytem when I go into control panel , system and click on it to check things out. any one have any ideas. It wouldn't be bsd since it doesn't affect firefox but it does stop me from opening a lot of progtams.
