Using RESTORE POINT with system updates

I'm trying to resolve why my computer has become sooooo slow in the last week or two.
I downloaded some Microsoft IE critical fixes a week or so ago and want to get the system back to before that. I don't know that this is the problem, it just looked like a logical move.
Can I go to the restore point before installing the critical fixes? If I were doing this with some 3rd party application I would uninstall the application then go the restore point, then reinstall. How do I do this though with updates and fixes to IE and XP?
Please educate me. Thank you.
I'm using Win XP Home Edition 2002 SP1 on a Dell Dimension 8100 with a Pentium 4 1.6 GHz processor. IE is version 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.x
Thanks.

Suggest you uninstall the Windows Updates (there have been problems with the recent ones) using Control Panel/Add and Remove Programmes (they are located at the bottom of the list). After removing (uninstalling) them try installing them again one at a time to see if you can ascertain which one is causing your system to slow down.

Would also suggest you tick (as resolved) your duplicate threads as they may lead to a bit of confusion!

lucky1,
Thank you for the advice.
Where did the duplicate threads come from? Did I do that?

You must have. There are two others. Maybe a problem with your computer?
