I had a problem after installing sp2 so I deleted it. This did not solve problem and ended up re-installing under the R configuration now it will not do such things as drag and drop, send to, download, open short cuts or run some programs, and so on. I have tried the re-install 3 times and each time I get error code 0x80040206 com+ event classes could not be registered plus a problem installing HP printer 840c. When I run adm. services a number of services required that are on automatic are not started and I am unable to manually start them. If I try to install any thing I get a message stating install cannot proceed because I am either in safe mode (which I am not) or windows installer service is not available and I should check with tec. support. I re-activated with MS the first time I ran R configuration but now I get a message saying I have 25 days to register. Please advise if there is a solution that does not involve a clean install as I have data on this drive I need but current problems do not allow me to save this data.

Microsoft Security Product Support Policy

Technical support is available from Microsoft Product Support
Services at 1-866-PC SAFETY (1-866-727-2338).

There is no charge for support calls associated with security updates.

International customers can get support from their local Microsoft
subsidiaries. Phone numbers for international support can be found
at: http://support.microsoft.com/common/international.aspx

From the:
Microsoft Security Bulletin - Summary for August, 2006

Being that you are having a problem with authentication and if you reach the thirtieth day without getting that straightened out and you are having problems as a result of the re-installation of SP2 as well, I suggest you call the number above or take advantage of the email method of contacting Microsoft Support from the Microsoft or Windows Update pages IMMEDIATELY!
