this is a strange one...I installed SP2....seems ok....

Then I went to www.microsoft.com, and then to update.....but it says that can't load update.....so I went to the microsoft troubleshooting guide, and it told me to change a registry value in:


and then to change the value of ' CSDVersion ' from my value of 200 to 0.

So I did, rebooted, went to microsoft/update, and now it says I have no SP1 or any updates installed......WTF!!!

SP2 shouldn't remove SP1......so any ideas guys.....should I uninstall SP2?

The reason it shows no service packs is because you changed the CSDVersion to 0. When a service pack is installed it puts its version into that registry value. I am assuming 200 stands for service pack 2.

I would change it back to 200, go back to windowsupdate.com and try updating. let me know the error you get
