Let me see if I understand this correctly.
In the beginning, you had to reboot after exiting COD2 to get certain internet applications to work, but they did work after the reboot.
Then you tried to fix this problem by using System Restore to the point/time just after
Then you attempted to reinstall SP1 because you thought maybe the Restore had not worked correctly. You got an error.
Now the problem has not been fixed, and you must reboot to use the same applications, but in addition to that problem, you cannot now download MS automatic updates.
Is this correct?
Can you attempt to reinstall SP1 and give us the exact text of the error message if it occurs again?
