I would advise that you don't uninstall, but clean your system. Download,
install, update and scan with Ad-aware: http://www.lavasoftusa.com

Lita,
If this problem has just developed as you said try going back with "System
Restore"
to a time that all was before 10/16 as followed:
Start / All Programs / Accessories / System Tools - Restore
Be sure that your Virus Definitions get updated after this restore and check
into Windows Live Update site!
And also Lita do yourself the favor do this:
Start / Control Panel / Security Center / Automatic Updates
Put a check in the box that says "Notify me but don't Automatically install
them"
As a general rule I go to Windows Live Update site every other day to check
for them!
Never let something download to your system without you knowing what it is...

Fix the problem instead of removing a very valuable update.

Maybe perhaps you can define what Sp2 valuable update is beyond this:
Yes let it be known it has:
1. A Firewall (if you have a Firewall, why?)
2. Virus Detection (if you have Virus Detection, why?)
3. Automatic Updates (One click you have Windows "Live" Update,why?)
If your truely aware of conflicts then, these 3 things are top of the List!
"Not saying don't Download Sp2" Just Look at 1-2-3
I have 3 up and running systems which has never recieved a Virus / Been over
taken / or have had to re-install the OS, one has been on for 3-1/2 years!

Your problem will persist until you remove the malware using a program like
Ad-aware. I have visited over 35 Computer Club members during the past three
months that had similar porblems. The number of malware programs ranged from
a low of 80 to a maximum of 512. If you read the instructions on istalling
SP2, Microsoft advises that you clean your system first.
