Some of the components of SP2 show up on "Add and Remove Programs" that I cannot remove.
Sounds typically microsoftish to me. Again, the CD is self-contained and doesn't rely on the website at all to load. You may be describing the need to have the activeX app that allows the new v5 screen to work at the website itself. The old v4 was, i don't know how to say it, how they had the updates done before they released SP2. It was one way , then in August it changed. For everyone with every version/update level At some point you'll need to download just that little "under 1 MB" application to use the "facility" at windows updates the "new way". That can sometimes be a problem getting if your settings in IE are "goofed up". Meaning if you somehow have told the system you want no part of any active X downloads. You can check by going:
I got an error message "cannot read to or write from the database".
Yes I do. You get it Here. You certainly can install it and IE stays, too. You simply have a choice which to use. I use both, IE 10%, FF 90%. You will need a rather larger 90MB download from Java to make FF work in the way you'd expect it too at many websites. The java runtime environment is to FF what activeX is to IE. basically. So rather than do two download/installs and experimentation with them simultaneously with the SP1 to SP2 process, you should plan accordingly. Install FF after SP2, or do it before, but give yourself some time to err in the trial & error that all modifications to your PC involve to some extent.
By the way...do you use FireFox? Think I would like it? Where do I get it and what do I do about IE...leave it on my computer too?

OK, thats not a bad idea for starters. Do you have the SystemWorks? I'd like to know exactly which program you were running.
I did not reinstall Norton because I think it is part of the problem.
This firewall works well. In several ways. To say it has email protection wouldn't be a definitive answer, rather it is protecting in the ways a firewall does. More specifically, email protection as such is provided by the anti-virus programs. For instance, AVG installed will give you a new option on your right-click flyout menu when dealing with any file on your PC. The one you use to choose options regarding what to do with a file or folder image. You'll notice that folder happens to be a folder of .mp3 files. "scan with AVG" appears as an option, and this will enact action. Notice it is "started manually". AVG, an anti-virus program, also provides "resident protection". It is one I have set to load at startup, and while I use the PC, all file/folder activity is monitored in the background.
I installed Sygate firewall. Does this firewall also have email protection in it?
