:trumpet: Hi! Anyone? :thumbsup: I've addressed this before...but gonna give it another try...
After using Application Recovery (out of necessity)...with my HP Pavillion 7955...(my files got wiped out)...The Windows Download web page is not fully operable...as it was before...after looking at some posts...I was wondering if this could have anthing to do with registry keys...Well, I do not want to fool with those without professional advice.
I couldn't re-download SP2 for XP (XP was on the puter when I got it)...but I am waiting on the CD to come in the mail.

I'm just curious...could something be altered to get that web page...to operate as it did before. For example...where you click on the left menu...some of it is just greyed out and I can't click on.

Thanks... :inlove: Have a great weekend...all viewers :flowers:

You can try doing a repair of internet explorer. One of my tutorials gives instrucvtions on how to do this. I would wait for the cd and see if that fixes it though

I am not sure I would use the SP2 update as a fix for any machine with problems, I have heard of to many horror stories of people trying to do this.
I strongly recommend fixing the problems before installing SP2 even if it means a clean install, might save some headaches.
