Hi,

I just upgrade my xp home service pack 1 to professional service pack 2
using the upgrade option.

now that I've upgraded, there are several things wrong with my system
that I can't seem to fix:

1. Sometimes during shutdown windows hangs at the "saving your
settings" dialog, I have to push the power button to have it power
off.

2. Right clicking any files (on the desktop, in explorer, and even
shortcuts in the start menu) will cause the system to lock up. I have
to end task explorer.exe and restart it to get windows back. Special
right click menus display without any problems (ie: my computer,
recycle bin, desktop, start button)

3. Going into control panel > network connections will lock up the
windows.

4. going into internet options > connections locks up just the internet
options window.


I've tried uninstalling as many programs I don't need. A reformat is my
LAST resort.

Any thoughts are welcome. :)

then type:EXIT Restart computer.You might 1st,run disk cleanup utility,then
defrag the drive.
