Hello mike160 and welcome to Geeks to Go

Please boot up in Safe Mode and do the following:

To uninstall an update/patch in XP:
1.) Go to the Control Panel, and then click on Add / Remove Programs.
2.) You will find a checkbox here that allows you to view the installed updates.
3.) All updates will be added to the list. It will show the date installed. Find the ones that are installed on 11/25/09
4.)Click on the updates and remove them.

Post back and let me know what happens :)
