Windows Update, OS and SP 3 issues
I installed all of the latest updates on my computer, including IE 8 and
Service Pack 3 for xp.

Now,

1) it’s not finding my camera when I plug it in;
2) it’s not installing (or uninstalling programs. It tells me there’s a
problem with the installer. I checked that theregistry permissions are as
required in the instructions on the Microsoft website. Still no good.
3) When I go to widows Update, it tells me I have to change my security
setting so as to enable userdata persistence… but userdate persistence is
already enabled.

Everything was fine before I installed the updates. My OS is legal and
registered 9or was, before the updates).

Uninstall the updates you installed one-by-one through the Control Panel -->
Add or Remove Programs and then use System Restore to go back to a time
before you installed all the updates... (Yes - in that order, not just
"System Restore".)

Then clean up and prepare your system for the updates. It's not like these
updates are anywhere *near* new - if you are speaking of SP3 for Windows XP
anyway.

Once you get things uninstalled - come back and someone can walk you through
the cleanup and proper installation of updates.
