    On what? The reinstall of your OS because i just used an old
    security flaw in XP to delete your Kernel along with some other
    DLL's?

    And now you know at least 2 ppl.

    Mine installed flawlessly,slowed NOTHING down,and fixed security issues at the same time.

    Give it a rest about M/S..the thread may not have been instigated by a SP1 fault after all! Possibly something interrupted it.
    Such is life.

    Oooh, I'm scared
    That doesn't really matter if stability and compatibility are the
    things we need.

    >>> the thread may not have been instigated by a SP1 fault after all! Possibly something interrupted it.

    Browsing the hard drive, I found a directory called something like "jehsdfh89q45ywhf4" with 270+ MB of stuff in it. The directory was created at about the time I had the original trouble, so I reckon that was the temporary stuff for install.

    The system hardware checks out fine, again and again, but the fact remains something did stop the machine at a most inconvenient moment.

    I'm still only guessing that the SP installer fiddles with the BIOS, I've not had anyone give me a satisfactory answer at MS.

    Whatever, the thread was started on the Mod board to tell the others I was on reduced bandwidth, it was only an idea to move it here. Since there seems to be little of constructive value, I'll close it.
    Wave upon wave of demented avengers march cheerfully out of obscurity unto the dream.
