    Any ideas on this? If there is no solution for it, I'm going to be uninstalling Service Pack 4.

    Do you have .NET framework 2.0 installed? It's usually installed by default with POSReady, but not on the standard XP Pro installation.

    I went to the “Add or Remove Programs” and I see “Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2”, so it looks like it’s already installed.

    I wasn't even aware anyone made an SP4 for XP.

    They technically didn’t. SP4 is an unofficial update made by an individual.

    I got that, hence "anyone" and not specifically "Microsoft".

    Does anyone know how to uninstall the unofficial Service Pack 4? It's in the "Add/Remove Programs" list but there is no "remove" option. I'm still having issues with the updates and would like to uninstall it for now until I can figure out why I'm having issues. I'll set up a clean install to do some testing on that.

    I've got a dual boot and everything on this machine, so I'd really rather not start over from scratch with it just to remove the service pack.

    You're going to have to uninstall the KB's selectively and it will be a PITA. Your best bet is to reinstall XP which you indicated that you don't wish to do. What's going on with SP 4 that you are having a problem with? FWIW, sometimes Net Framework 4 (or above) will attempt to install and cause an error. You can put your box online and let it attempt to update. Later, check Windows Updates and see what didn't install properly (if anything) and then you can selectively remove the errant program(s). Over all, my experience with the so called SP 4 has been good. XP these days takes considerable time and patience to administer. I try to make it as slim as possible and only use it as a platform on a 90's gaming machine. Caveat: My tweener runs XP and DOS also.

    The Net Framework 2.0 and 3.0 updates fail to install. Can I uninstall Net Framework 2 and 3?

    .Net Framework must have been installed by a program that I installed on that requires it, so uninstalling would likely break something.
