Hi, had to do a re install of my OS XP a while back and SP2 from the disk. Originally had SP3 but when I tried to download it from Microsoft site I only got error messages so I gave up in the end. Saw a link in a posting today to download it from a different source which I did with no problems. Since I have done this Firefox no longer works, I can type something in the search bar and click search but nothing happens. Any suggestions please.

Jock1e, tried you suggestion but still won't work. I can get it to work if I do restore but then SP3 not showing.
