    You can use system restore to set the drive back to before the update was loaded, if the computer boots up.
    click start
    click all programs
    click accessories
    click system tools
    click system restore
    check the box that says restore my system to an earlier date
    click next
    choose a bold date on the calendar before you did your update
    click next
    follow the directions
    after restore, restart the computer

    If the system does not restore, choose an earlier date and try again.
    Reminds me, backup all your stuff onto an on line backup such as Mozy (the first 2GB is free), or CDs or DVDs
    Once again, I recommend you shut off automatic updates permanently, use a high quality anti virus.
    There have been a lot of reports of OS updates corrupting systems. That's why I keep mine off. I recommend to all XP users, shut off the automatic updates.
