That said, click Start, then Run, type c:\windows\$NtServicePackUninstall$\spuninst\spuninst.exe in the Run box, and then click "OK". When the Windows XP Service Pack 2 Removal Wizard starts, click "Next". Follow the instructions on the screen to remove Windows XP SP2.
Once SP2 has been removed, Run this REPAIR to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd's
Once this repair has completed, you will have to download all Windows Updates again.
