    I have a Xp that was repaired. It was running fine, but i was browsing updates and on the microsoft site, it siad there were 6 security updates that needed to be installed. Like a dummie i proceeded to have them installed. This complete changed my computer. i could not get the restore to work and it would not go back. i then went to uninstall and found the updates with the correct time and date and uninstalled them ,but it made everthing go crazy.
    now i have "old" versions of the home page, my yahoo e-mail is nothing like it previously was, with a box to check to delete, etc. now it is single view and has a line through the words. i can read them, but no color or none of the version that was on before.
    I cannot download almost anything, even the scan at the beginning of this site.
    I cannot access internet options. I click the icon, but nothing happens.
    I cannot download pictures or music msgs in my e-mails/
    I cannot bering up bigger print size to see the page better.
    The computer shows version 8?? now.
    when i had it repaired, the person cleaned the harddrive completely and reinstalled everthing. after those 6 updates, my computer is ruined and i cannot afford $150 to get it repaid.
    I hope that some of these problemx can be fixed someway. Everyone says to delete cookies, but i can't access that.
    Please help..

    Your first post says that System Restore didn't work. Then your next post says that you did do a system restore. Now you say you did a "reset". What's that?
