I've heard that is a huge pain to remove. I don't know how to do it though, sorry.

Yeah, it's a real pain in the a** to remove. I think I had to do system restore..but I can't remember if that fixed it or not...

Have you trying running the system file checker to see if it would restore all of the bits and pieces?
Go to Start, Run, SFC /Checknow
You might need to have your XP CD or whatever vendor restore CD came with your PC handy to restore the files.

The best option i can suggest. TweakUI powertoy for Windows XP.

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/d...powertoys.mspx

It allows you to rebuild the icon cache. Try that.

From another forum-

It uninstalled, but it left behind Vista icons. So I installed a trial version of some program that modifies the icon cache. I changed 3 icons back to normal, and the trial uninstalled itself, but in the process it emptied the cache and rebuilt it.


So what Mak said should work

You removed SP3 yet it still shows the watermark for it? Is that what you are asking about?
