    When I went to install SP2 (it was probably a message from the Gods) I get thisError message:

    Windows has detected that one or more protected core system files (kernel) on your computer have been modified

    CAUSE
    This behavior may occur if your computer has a modified version of the Ntoskrnl.exe file that uses the /KERNEL switch in the Boot.ini file. This condition may exist because your computer has a third-party program installed that customizes the graphics that are displayed when your computer starts up. Third-party programs that can cause this condition include the following:

    * BootXP
    * LogonUI Boot Randomizer

    Solution: More details here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;327101 Basicly reinstall SP1 it looks like



    :(

    i had this problem.... if you are using styleXP uninstall it and try SP2 again, it worked for me.
    Uninstall any program like it too, windowblind, boot changers, login chagers etc

    Thanks you guys. I'll give your suggestions a try. Sorry I'm late getting back to my post. Been messing around with Firefox 0.9.3. driving me crazy with all those extensions. Yes I did uninstall SyleXP and tried installing SP2 again without any luck. I'll try again. Hey guys you are my guru experts I go to and I thought I'd share with you windows knowledge base

    over and Windows Help and Support if you haven't seen it already. Is this anything that would say we should hold off on this or not? I'm not so sure I want to install yet anyway.

    Style XP does not need to be uninstalled.....overwrite with version 2.13 for SP2, after update.
