you may also want to use the windows backup feature just to be safe so you don't loose anything.

I guess yo'll have to use the standard 3R Windows troubleshooting procedure. Reboot, Reformat, Reinstall..

Thanks johnsellars. Well could you pls tell me how i could do a windows back up thru the cmd prompt. I did read the procedures given in the microsoft.com support page. But its done by opening the Backup or restore Wizard window which i cannot in the usual way.
Or if there is any way i could open this window thru the comand prompt Please help me.

Thanks and cheers,

Oh that was cool!!!!
I got rid of the problem by first backing up the things i needed of course all thru the cmd prompt. Then i just went for the repair feature which ended up very well and alas i have got rid of the SP2 which was the nasty thing...

Phew......
