Display problems after updating windows xp

12 Sep

Our own Doug Bender spent many hours reproducing this problem and trying various fixes.There are some needed conditions but he did come up with an acceptable fix. You can reach Safe Mode by tapping the F8 or F5 key during the boot process.

One of the first things I noticed after installing SP 3 was that my one and only restore point was missing.

Reports of vanishing connections and missing network cards were pouring in.

Bewildered users on the Microsoft support site noted the link between Symantec Corps, Norton Internet Security, and the huge number of broken registry entries all beginning with “$%&”.

I keep my allotted System Restore space to a minimum and make sure I have at least one up to date restore.

Normally, when you install an update, Windows will create a new restore point for the update.
