:thumbsup: Hi! Yesterday I removed IE from add/remove programs because I wanted to get rid of Yahoo controlling it...and because I couldn't get logged into .NET through IE. I had spybot search and destroy, and because of making a wrong choice clicking on a dialogue box from there I couldn't access Windows or desktop. I had to use application recovery...so, now I'm starting from basics. What I want to know...is...where do I start with updates. Would I have to update SP1 before updating to SP2? I got rid of spybot search and destroy...I know it is recommended, but I went through H-E double toothpicks over this yesterday. Anyway, Windows XP Home edition was on the computer...and its an HP. :flowers:
Thanks, nancylouisehite

I suggest you visit the Windows update site and let it scan & tell you what you need. Since the updates are cumulative you should only need to install SP2 I think.

Just go to www.windowsupdate.com and start downloading the critical updates and rebooting and going back till there are no more.

Make sure you turn on the firewall first!
