How can I remove Service Pack 3 from my system, which is Windows XP Home Edition? I had a problem that I couldn’t resolve myself, and had to take my PC in for service. The tech corrected the problem, but in doing so also installed SP3 with all its updates.
About a year ago I tried SP3 but ran into problems with it. A few of my programs just didn’t operate right, so I uninstalled and went back to SP2. Now I’m having the same problem. When I try to uninstall the Service Pack to revert back to SP2, it tells me that the “SP3 file can’t be found. Uninstall failed”. I’ve tried uninstalling through Add/Remove Programs, using Ccleaner & Revo uninstaller, but with no luck. I’ve even turned my virus protection off and tried, but with the same results. The only thing I haven’t tried is uninstalling in Safe Mode.
If someone could help out here, I’d truly appreciate it.
