Hey all. I downloaded from microsoft website sp3 for xp professional. Did not deactivate security software. Now there is a problem preventing windows from accurately checking the license for the computer. Since I don't have a disc how can I get back rid of sp3. I can get to safe mode but not into desktop. Thank you.

1. Turn On your PC

2. Press F8 repeatedly and go to Safe Mode

3. Logon as per normal
(note: Administrator password is usually blank, but hopefully you know your password)

4. Allow the Desktop to fully load (answering "Yes" to continue into Safe Mode)
(note: This is just a long way of saying go to Safe Mode)

5. Click on Start - Run

6. Type in exactly: rundll32.exe syssetup,SetupOobeBnk (and click OK)
(note: one space, after "rundll32.exe " also the Oo are two letter o's in "oobe"; capitals and comma are important)

7. Wait a couple of seconds (although you will Not see any change)

8. Restart your PC normally (Start - Shutdown - Restart - Ok)

9. You are now able to go to Normal Mode again (For another 30 days !!!)

10.Once in Normal mode you can go to Add Remove Programs and Uninstall SP3 if you want.
