I can't help really other than to say I have done the same thing on a
Samsung N220 windows 7 netbook.
I can get help rebuilding the entire machine and if I need to that's what I
will do though in truth this netbook is now getting on for 3 years old and
it's really done some solid work. I don't want to rebuild unless absolutely
necessary. I also can't install windows 7 sp1.

Subject: [BCAB] Windows Updates
I know I have raised this topic before, but I did nothing about it last
time, so am writing again. Apologies.
I have the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium with Window-Eyes 8.2.
Some time ago I made the mistake of playing about with Windows to run
Windows Mail. As a consequence I have mangled the registry and Windows 7
not update to Service Pack 2. I am afraid to say I did not have the
inclination to do anything about this until I had to.
Now my PC keeps telling me that I have missed an important update. Also I am
quite keen to try Internet Explorer 10. I have loaded IE9 twice and rolled
back to IE8 as it seemed to behave better.
Has anyone successfully managed to rectify this problem without doing a
complete rebuild? Although I thought I had created rescue discs when I got
Windows 7, I am not sure how useful they are.
Any advice welcome
