My work pc came with Windows XP Home edition. My office recently purchased XP Pro, and I upgraded. Now I am unable to use the internet. Our office uses an always on internet connection. When I go to Network Connections it doesn't show any networks. I have downloaded drivers, and that didn't work. The computer is a Compaq Presario 6000 desktop. Any idea how I can fix this problem?

I was able to dig this up. Reference: http://4sysops.com/archives/tip-how-to-install-and-uninstall-a-program-in-safe-mode/
Run Windows in safe mode. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\ Create a registry key REG_SZ keyand call it MSIService and value data and call it Service, which is the windows installer. This will give you permission to uninstall windows service Pack 3 from add/remove programs while in safe mode.
Well if you have it installed on the computer and cant get past the Windows logo. Put the SP3 disk in and do a repair. Make sure you hit -R and not the repair button after clicking continue. Well the directions for a repair will be on the screen. That is my thoughts on what you should do. If you have already done this, then I'm not sure where you should head to next. Hope this helps!!
You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known
issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and

Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.
Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows
Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback.
Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been
completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do
recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before
updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the
the bluetooth and wifi of your laptop is not working after you upgrade your system to windows xp this is due of driver problem you need to instal the updated driver/software of your bluetooth and wifi that is compatible for windows xp....
