There is not much else you can do :(( in till the 2nd SP come out), you can always try the SP again :) & run windows update.

What typed of Internet connection do you have???

Do you have a firewall??? & Antivirus Program

How did you remove it? I downloaded and installed it and things have changed for the worse - I don't want it and it told me that if I remove it then quite a few programmes won't run properly after that. Help

I am not too sure, sorry

But MS does not recommend you do that.

Also I might add that win XP SP 2 will not come out till next year

Install Norton Internet Security asap, or you will get the blaster worm as well :)
