XP Service Pack

  Pucky 16:31 27 Sep 03

I installed the service pack from a CD, and restarted the system. When the system got to the desktop there was nothing else showing just the picture, no icons, start button, nothing at all. I had to reboot, and fortunately there is another user, so I had to log on through their name, and do a system restore to get back to where I was before I installed the software.

You have not posed a question so I assume you are asking what went wrong.

With SP1 it does take a long time for the desktop to fully open on first reboot. You may have just rebooted too soon.
