I'd downloaded serv pck 3 already, but downloaded it again, anyway, when it came up as an "express" download on msft download sit.
Goes through regular routine, to "Windows" logo, then about 10 seconds into logo (with "loading" bar), a blue screen with white letters flashes for just an
instant, too briefly to make anything out.
Didn't backup, and system restore happens to have been off for a long time (shut off when removing malware).
1.I used "mic updates" in "security", in the control panel, to access msft download site--same as always--don't have any reason to suspect malware
(performed zonelabs virus/spyware scan within previous 4 days).
2.Will start in safe mode, but not in "most recent settings that worked" mode.
3. I have spybot w/tea timer, which flashes warnings/ permission boxes that updates are changing regisrty, etc...must allow in spybot in order for change to
be made by the update--I did this before when downloading svc pk 3, and didn't have problems--this time, however, I left momentarily during download ,
and when I returned, installation was hanging up while waiting for me to allow a change. Don't know if this might have someting to do with it...
4. Tried uninstalling all spyware/security apps, but still fails to load, same behavior.
Q1. Can I just uninstall the svpk 3 download? How?
