Unhappy I plug in Sony DSC Camera, Win XP home shuts off


I'm experiencing problems when I plug in my sony DSC s-70 camera (via usb) to my computer. I'm running Windows XP home. I had been using the camera for months with Windows XP with no problems, but 2 days ago (after I installed a service pack update that I downloaded from mircosoft) Windows begin to recognize the camera as a "new device" every time I plug it in to my usb port. I get the "new hardware found" message and then the camera wizard pops up. Before I have time enough to click on the camera wizard and dowload photos the computer automatically reboots. I have tried switching usb ports, closing out the "new hardware detected" message, not using the wizard to download photos, but I cannot stop the system from rebooting a few seconds after I plug in the camera. I'm trying to avoid a reformat, but I don't know of a way to remove the service pack I installed, and I'm not familiar with any way of defeating plug and play while still being able to download photos via usb. Any ideas? Thank you

You can remove the patch from the add/remove programs panel. Also try reinstalling the camera software again.
