My system crashed after SP2 and it basically reformatted my hard drive, I had more then 4 G's on my C drive and 19 G's on my D drive before the crash. Now, I have 1 G's left on my C drive. The problem is that whenever I want to unistall programs it gives me an error message saying it cant uninstall because it cant find files and it ends with the letters isu.

What does that mean and how can I uninstall the programs? I tried to use system restore but it doesnt let me go back to August. My SP2 was Sept 6 and I had no restore points the first few days.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Hi,

The .ISU files relate to the install/uninstall shield. Have a look here for info. Sound like you'll have to repair or replace it. That's the limit of my knowledge.

Good luck.

I cant seem to return my restore point before sept 6 when my computer crashed. Does anyone know how to go to the previous month. When I clicked on the arrow indicating previous month nothing happens.

Microsoft's Disk Cleanup has the ability to remove all but the most recent restore points. Perhaps someone had run this on you.

Apart from this I can't think of anything else.
