    What does SYSTEM in control panel say.

    Run this and it will tell you exactly what updates you have and if they are applied correctly.

    Don't undrstand what you meant, " Run This " ????

    The control Panel only shows all other Appz that I have manually installed

    Niteghost,
    In 'contol panel' go to -> Add/Remove Programs. At the top of this window a checkbox titled "Show updates". Check the box and scroll down the list. There should be a listing for 'WindowsXP Service Pack 2' , SP2 includes the previous updates so they shouldn't be listed any longer. HTH
