Byro, that's a horror story! I've heard others about installing Windows Updates, and I always set a new restore point before installing them, just in case. Glad you're back among the living!

As a point of information, Windows automatically creates restore points before installing updates, no need to create your own.

Always note the file name for any updates you make, then you can always uninstall them using add/remove programmes in Control Panel if you have problems.

If you can't see them in the list, check "show updates" at the top of the list.

Ro, glad your machine is running fine. Craig, glad Ro's misfortune helped you.

My post was only for use if you lost your GUI. (sorry it was incomplete, I've edited it and added the bits I forgot to put in). If not, then Craig's suggestions are the better way to go.

gary,

thanks
i dont know that my entire machine is now fixed, but so far everything i was aware was broken is now working again. i'm procrastinating, however, on trying the sp2 install again. in fact, i'm procrastinating on even rebooting my machine after the registry fix. one miracle a day is about all i can stand

and Ro,

if my sp2 install doesnt go right, i expect you to break your machine again.

craig
