nutpi...

Is your machine still "locking up" or have we taken care of that issue?

Please go to your Control Panel and Open "Add/Remove Programs"...check the box at the top of the window to "Show Updates"...scroll down the list and post me a list of the updates installed on your machine.

nutpi....

Ok...we're making some progress here.

Go to Windows Update (Start > All Programs >near the top of the menu), choose the "Custom" option and let it scan your machine for updates. Download and install all Critical Updates if any are available. Reboot as necesary. Then go back to Windows Update, choose the "Custom" option again let it scan and in the left pane, choose "Software", download and install those updates.

Please post back with your results.

What were the errors, nutpi. Skip SP4 and move on the the software updates, but post back the errors you received if you can.

That's odd...do you have Admin rights? I'm assuming you do. How is your machine running? Any more lock-up issues? You might be good to go....

I'm looking into the SP4 problem and will post back to this thread with what I find.
