i'm using XP PRO corp SP2.
The install is a bit screwed and I just tried a repair install to fix it - some improvements but some new problems too.
I have installed SP2 and IE7 but am unable to use windows update becasue it errors - I've tried all of the things suggested but no go.
Mouse does not work, wont power up when plugged into the USB port. Tried to install driver but setup.exe wont run (access denied) even when runas administrator. Tried installing the usb drivers from the mobo disk + latest nforce drivers.
poking around I noticed COM+ was completely screwed so i followed this article to reinstall it PRB: Cannot Expand "My Computer" in Component Services MMC Snap-In
but it give an error part way though the reinstall.
Any ideas how I can atleast get the mouse working? Using mouse keys is going to drive me nuts.
Edit: oh and i've applied the compatible workstation template in both gpedit and local security policy
edit2: nothing wrong with mouse, tried 3 differnt ones, all work with my laptop
Edit3: managed to get automatic updates running - installing updates now
Edit: ok, so i feel dumb now, USB driver wasnt selected in device manager - mouse working. Still, any suggestions about COM+ welcome
