    I am planning to reinstall SP2 as some of the ie and system files got corrupted.
    I made this decision after trying to uninstall ie7 beta which made my ie corrupted and chm/help files
    are not working.

    I have installed few patches after installing SP2 like Hotfixes,alt+tab controller,clear type font
    etc..

    Now please advice me on the following
    1.Can I reinstall SP2 without unistalling it or any of the patches?
    2.Will it create system instability?
    3.Can ie and chm related system files alone can be restored?I am saying this b'caz i couldnt able to
    unistall ie7 to get back to ie6 or reinstall them again with ie7 rc1

    Go to Windows update & check for any updates first of all, there was one KB article regarding CHM files in windows, their handling, i think one of those is missing now

    U can also do one thing, just go to control panel -> Add\remove programs-> Uninstall Windows component, & uninstall IE 6 & then reinstall IE 7, this will fix it
