This is a problem with Enemy Territory, but please don't move it because it's not really ET related, just that it affects ET. Windows XP Service Pack 2 downloaded itself about 3 days ago, and now I have a problem with it, because when I play ET, about 5 minutes into a game my computer crashes. If it isn't something to do with service pack 2, then the other things i've installed are Half-Life 2 (with Steam which came with it) and the latest driver for my graphics card (RADEON ALL-IN-WONDER 9800 Series). I think it is likely to be windows service pack 2, which i have tried to avoid installing, but it did it automatically (sneaky eh. . . ) When it crashes, i get no error mesage or anything that could lead to a solution. So, my current options as I see them are to: 1) Remove Service Pack 2; 2) Do a system restore to before I installed the video drivers; 3) Remove Half-Life 2; 4) All of the above. I don't really facy uninstalling HL2, but if i must, I would. . . My main question now is, is it possible to remove Windows XP Service Pack 2? If so, how? My computers specifications are: OS: Windows XP Home edition (Service Pack 2) RAM: 1GB Processor: AMD Athlon 64-bit processor 3200+, MMX, 3DNow, ~2.0Ghz Graphics Card: RADEON ALL-IN-WONDER 9800 Series (with latest catalyst version) All help is welcome, and if you need anymore information about my PC, just ask. Thanks in advance.

I removed SP2 by simply going to "Add/Remove Programs" in my control panel. Ive recently installed it again, as I notice way less crashes and hangs when running it. I just disable the inbuilt firewall, use my own, and all is fine.

I know this doesnt really relate to your problem, but are there any error messages when it crashes? One idea would be to install ET after you install SP2...

No, I don't get any error messages, just about 2 bits of fuzz going through my speakers before it crashes. . . I'll try installing ET again, but first i'll try removing SP2.

you can remove sp2 by add/remove programs or restore point, but if system restore is disabled then add/remove is the only way i know of, if you want sp2 installed try doing it after a format and reinstall of xp before you add any prgrams, this got mine running sweet with no problems, then as you add programs check they run ok, if they dont then check for updates form the software producers site or on microsofts site for help


Thinking about it.
