Did something really stupid when i installed SP2, and deleted
C:\windows\servicepackfiles. Now i can't change windows components (windows
keeps asking for the Windows SP2 CD)

Is there anyway to fix this?

Yes do the correct thing and make a Slipstream version that is the Only way to
install SP2

**** off, i already have SP2, and do you really think I would have upgraded
to SP2 if it meant reinstalling windows? My machine was working fine
before, SP2 hasn't added any stablility, and certainly hasn't made my
machine any more secure. (I can't stand IE, I already have a firewall and I
don't need windows to tell me how to run my Antivirus software)

Don't worry, Slipstream is the latest discovery by WOger. Ergo, it must
be fantastic and everyone should use it.

Except people have been coping without Slipstream for such a long time -
it isn't a "only way to do it" method - but it is for Woger, as he's
newly discovered it.

Well, I went to windows Update, and there they told me that the easiest and
fastest way to get SP2 was to enable automatic updates. So I did so, and a
few hours later it asked me if i wanted to install it, i pressed yes, the
end of that. Surely if there was a better way for my situation, they would
have told me? Unless they _want_ their customers to have a hard time using
their products?

And as if the average home user, who can barely manage turning their PC on to
check their emails, would have any damn clue wtf a 'slipstream' IS. Lay off the
meds Woger.

You may need a sliptreamed SP2 (as you have to re-install weekly after stuffing
your PC up) but others don't.

Slipstream CDs are not legal for most users. NZ copyright law does not
allow you to make them.
