Two ways...

1.) Check Add/Remove entry should have been automatically created, letting you uninstall it like a normal program.

2.) Perform a System Restore to earlier in the day or the day prior, effectively removing the update.

Followed your suggestions ?

I followed your suggestion, did not find any updates in AD Remove.
I did a system restore that did not work and I did it on both computer and it did not help.
It has to be the bunch off updates I installed today, because the problems with IE happened just a little after the updates.
I just reinstalled XP on both computers a week ago had know problems untill today.
It only happens when I go to favorites to open a browser.
I just noticed I have issues with real player when I open it up that never happened before today. I do not send error messages to microsoft but I enabled that feature so Microsoft knows about the issue.

Any other suggestion would good.

Thank You

I put a check in the Ad Remove program that said show updates it did. I should have done one at a time to see which one caused the problem There were seven updates for 12/12/2007 I uninstalled them all.
Now to install them back one at a time to find out which one caused the problem.
I would let you know when I find out which one it was.

Thank You Very Much:
