I have a company laptop with windows 2000, SP3. I want to upgrade it to SP4, but should I need to give the laptop back, can I uninstall the SP4 upgrade?

Why should it matter? They should be pleased you are taking the initiatve to protect tehir PC if they are not doing it.

As I recall, yes....there is a screen that gives you the option of backing up pre-sp4 files should you wish to uninstall

I guess they should. I was just worried that it may make it incompatible with the rest of the network, if this machine is running SP4 and the rest isn't?

It won't affect being in the network. As long as this machine was setup with the domain credentials, it's all good :tazz:

I went to install it, and it said that it's recommended you back everything up...... Does it clear any data, or reset anything???
