System Restore & SP2

    Yesterday I installed SP2. Because of a problem I have in being unable to
    connect to the internet, I did a system restore to a date prior to the SP2
    installation. Now I can get on the 'net. I have not uninstalled SP2.

    Question: Obviously the restore jumped over, went around, or whatever phrase
    you might choose, the changes that occurred during the SP2 install that
    prevent me from accessing internet. Because of the restore I can now
    connect.

    What, if any, portions of SP2 are now operative/functional after the
    restore? Because of the restore to a date prior to the SP2 install, is
    everything the same as if the install never occurred? If the restore
    "erased" the bad stuff, did it also neutralize the "good" stuff which is
    part of Service Pack 2?

    Thanks for any help you might offer.
