That all sounds good, been there, did that, only that the 2 gig's the
package was taking before are still not free.

It's like, before sp2 installation the HD had 26 G free, after
installation 24, after uninstallation still 24 G.

Any idea on how to clean my hard drive and recover the space? :what

In my recent wanderings of newsgrous souch as this the common theme of
this thread seemed to be that SP2 is not a problem if you have a
stable OS.

I would advise against unistalling SP2. For some reason it loses a
vital link to a file, sometimes 2, which is what causes it to
constantly reboot. My recent experiences have made me have to do a
comlete istall.
One options that worked last time (which was not my on PC, by the way)
is boot from the OS CD and select Repair which is almost like a new
install (it did ask for a product key and forced me to active before
allowing me log on).
The one good thing about this was I did not have ro re-install all the
applications. If you have enough disk space create a restore point
that will at least get you back to try again.
