hi guys...
i have a huge problem. I was starting my computer, which is Vista Home Premium 32 Bit. At the desktop, i noticed that windows update sign had come on. I double clicked it and it read: Important update for the computer. I cant remember the size but it said , 35mb-343.3mb something like that. Anyways, the update was SP2. I didnt know what this was so i just installed it. After installing it said to restart.
So i did. Then when it came to the loading screen where green things load, it stopped and said a message in blue, but it disappeared in less than a second. I kept restarting but the message still didnt appear that fast. I dont have any cds that can boot to a certain point in the computer nor have other cds too. Can you guys help me? I am using my laptop and my computer is needed to be working so that my child can do his hoemwork. (laptop is broken, and i am lucky that this is working okay today.) Please give me complete details. Also, i have searched some forums where they said you should have never downloaded that update, SP2 for vista. THAT WAS A BIG MISTAKE for me!
