If you uninstall SP2 with add / remove then you will get a list of warnings about programmes which will no longer work correctly, the list is usually so long, it would be quicker to list the programmes which will work properly

The best option for removing SP2 is to run an XP Repair but you will need to install all the other windows updates

You can use these to repair XP

XP Repair Install

Or here if you are unable to run XP Repair Install

Alternative XP Repair Install Method

Use Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation, from the list, 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 XP Repair you will need to install all Windows Updates

Microsoft Update

The runescape site says to clear the temporary internet files in case the browser is caching an old version of the game

We do not deal with P2P issues
