Hi all, I applied the X2 patch and MS hotfix last night and left the pc working happily. Come to it this morning and everytime i try to access the internet through a program, it brings up an error report, although i can ignore the reoprt and still use the program - as i am doing right now. I've since uninstalled the patch and hotfix but it's still happening. I've also tried to restore an old registry back up from yesterday, but when i do that i get a 'Not all data successfully written. Some keys are open by the system' message. Also, after doing that i have no sound as it complains about the directsound driver. Any ideas would be appreciated as i'm about to tear my hair out after finally getting this thing working how i wanted it Cheers *not so ninja edit* should also mention that i've done full spyware and virus scans and come back with nothing.
