    after uninstalling Mcafee stuff from my Dell laptop, I get a message about security settings and active-x controls when I try to update my xp. if I try to install the service pack manually, I get an error about the cryptography service not running. What's up with this?

    Or turn on the cryptographic service :

    Control panel / administrative tools / services / scroll down to cryptographic service, right click it and set it to auto then start and apply.

    Tried that wvice, and it says it's running already. I have found that although I have a microsoft .Net account I can't access the Messenger ( can't Login) or any of the .Net sites.
