jpetrovick Posted May 13, 2009 Share Posted May 13, 2009 I'm trying to repair my IE-6 by uninstalling a possibly corrupted SP-3, and I can't figure out why my XP box won't let me. It's listed in my Control Panel add/remove programs list, but when I try to remove it, the Software Update Removal Wizard goes through its routine, then ultimately ends up with 2 messages that say "The System Cannot Find The File Specified" and "Service Pack 3 was Not Uninstalled". Belarc says its there, and System Properties says its there. I tried 3 options suggested by the Microsoft Support site (including the "hidden $NTServicPackUninstall$folder"), and all 3 options ended with the same "Cannot Find The File" message. Dial-A-Fix tools hasn't been successful in Repairing/Reinstalling IE, my computer is apparently clean of all Malware, and all updates are current. Can I reinstall SP-3 without uninstalling the earlier program? Also, my System Restore lost its ability to go back to the day when I installed SP-3 (a couple weeks ago). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Question: UPHClean was installed about the same time my box started acting up - can this be related?? At present, the only way I can access the net is via Firefox. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
