General discussion


I noticed that Microsoft Internet Explorer in not in add/remove. Should it be there?
I tried doing sfc /scannow and when it asked for Windows XP Home Edition I put it in. But it kept coming up with a message for me to put in CD. I hit retry a few times and gave up.When I restarted, I received a message that Internet Explorer has been moved from this computer. I clicked OK. However, I have IE6 and it is working perfectly. I don't remember if Microsft IE was ever in Add/remove. SP2 in in there along with later updates.

i think it usually appears under "windows components"

in add/remove....

another "problem" that i found with SP2 is that XP no longer recognises the original install CD, to run SFC i had to use the slipstream CD Sad

Thanks Jonah. I thought SP2 might be the reason. Also, I don't have a Windows Components in Add/remove but I have IE6 running OK. I remember seeing something on this form about slipstream. Can you give me a link so I can see if I can do that?

Never Mind

I just saw this post from you:
and just a word of advice....

the latest "buzzword" is "slipstream" (i.e. integrate SP2 and XP before the install) but you should know! if anything stops working on your computer due to SP2 (and believe me, there are a LOT of things that are not 'exactly' SP2 compliant) to the best of my knowledge, there is no way to uninstall SP2 if you slipstream...

i would suggest, install XP, check that everything is OK, then install SP2, that way, if anything gets reamed out by SP2 you have always got the option to uninstall, check what happened, fix it, and then try again...

I'll leave well enough alone.
