    "System Reply" what is that?
    Have you tried using system restore. There should be a restore point created before sp2 that you can return to and then backup your files.

    Sorry

    I Used The Wrong Term

    I Used Reply Instead Of Restore

    I Think The Date Of The Upgrade Was 09-05-04

    I Used The Date Of Restore 08-29 04

    Thanks

    Not sure what to do from here. As you can see backing up important info is a good idea.

    Don't give up, there are a lot of people here better at this than me.
