I'm trying to remove the Service Pack 2 on my computer, but no where on my computer is it detecting it. I know I have it with the Security Console, and in safe mode at the top it says "Service Pack 2". Any help?

Hi StrokingEwoks!

When in the DEVICE MANAGER, click on the checkbox next to SHOW UPDATES, then it should be listed down at the bottom labeled WINDOWS XP SERVICE PACK 2

Don't uninstall it if you are just trying to get the Windows XP theme back to work, because I told you how to fix it in that post.

It still does not show up when the "Show Updates" box is clicked on. I'm trying to remove due to dislike of it. My computer ran better without it.

Please go here to repair your operating system

http://www.geekstogo...ws-XP-t138.html

OR

http://www.theelderg..._windows_xp.htm

Use the last one - Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation, which uses a slightly different method

Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system

After running the repair it will be necessary to install all Windows Updates
