There are a lot of headaches and bugs in the SP3. Removing the software and reinstalling it using a "clean boot" may resolve the symptoms you are experiencing. Booting clean is a way to eliminate programs from conflicting with installation and operation of software.

1. Open the Windows Control Panel.
2. Open the Add / Remove Programs window.
3. Locate the listing for the software and remove it.

Next, do the following:
1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG --> Click OK
2. On the General tab, choose Selective Startup
3. Uncheck Process SYSTEM.INI file
4. Uncheck Process WIN.INI file
5. Uncheck Load Startup Items
6. Click on the Services tab
7. At the bottom, check Hide All Microsoft Services
8. Uncheck all boxes in the window or click the button labeled Disable All
6. Click OK
7. Click Restart

After restarting, reinstall the software. Next, do the following:

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG--> Click OK
2. Replace checkmarks in the items that you previously removed them from.
3. On the General tab, choose Normal Startup
4. Click OK
5. Click YES, when asked to restart your computer

Another option would be to uninstall the SP3 update and revert back to SP2. You can uninstall the SP3 update in the same way, through Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

Close the Programe (Notice)


User permissions issue. Go to C:\program files\microsoft\fsx and find the fsx.exe icon. Right-click it, choose properties, and tick the check box for "always run as administrator". This process doesn't always work doing this from the FSX shortcut.

Outlook 2007 not starting. Error message says corrupted file. Run Scnpst.exe.


As an old Outlook user (for over a decade). I ever met similar error with my Outlook PST files before and got it solved with this Outlook PST repair software, the software extracts & restores those inaccessible Outlook items in a new .pst file and enables complete Outlook data recovery. If you want to take the most effective way, then try that program. Hope it helps too with your case.

WINDOW CANNOT FIND GPHONE.EXE


Gphone.exe is worm which spreads via instant messengers. It usually affects Yahoo! Messenger and Google Talk applications. Gphone.exe send a message and invites victims to visit a website. If clicked upon, the link actually delivers a copy of Gphone.exe infection.

Most likely you have a security program that detected and removed the threat but windows is still trying to load the file on startup.

Go to Start > Run> type "msconfig" and press enter. click the startup tab and uncheck the box that says "gphone.exe". (it may have a long file or folder path in front like c:\windows\system32).

Go to this website if you need further removal instructions:

Most likely you have a security program that detected and removed the threat but windows is still trying to load the file on startup, thankfully it isnt able to because the threat is gone so windows is displaying that error message to let you know it was not able to load the file.
