How to Remove Windows XP Service Pack 3

frustration with windowsMicrosoft has a nice way of putting it:

"After you install Windows XP SP3, a hardware device or an installed program may work differently."

Isn't marketing speak just priceless?

Well, just in case "differently" is not to your liking, Microsoft recommends four ways to remove SP3. You can use the following:
  • Control Panel: Add or Remove Programs
  • Hidden $NtServicePackUninstall$ folder
  • System Restore
  • Recovery Console
While it is likely that one of these procedures might solve your problem, it is possible that none of them will work.

If you are not thoroughly familiar with these tools, do not attempt to use them. Instead, contact Microsoft and get their free technical support for SP3 installation issues.
