If my problem is covered, I cannot find it seaching this database. The initial problem is I cannot login at USAviation.com forums. I can login with the laptop, but not my desktop. It reports that I need COOKIES enabled. I have them enabled and have even tried turning off all security to allow it to accept all cookies. I did notice that Windows Update when scanned does not report in the windows folder. It just greys out. I have reinstalled IE6 and it's SP1. I am not sure if a Recovery of XP (pro) is required. Can I upgrade Windows XP SP1 over itself? If this is what is required, then is it best to use the Slipstream CD, layed out in another thread?
