Sorry, missed that.
Difficult to say, but maybe Microsoft forums http://www.microsoft.com/communities/default.mspx
Or http://www.techsupportforum.com/

Thanks for the suggestion Tech, the Microsoft forum was great. I managed to get it fixed and I now see that familiar yellow shield in the taskbar. Turns out I did have to play around in the registry (not something I wanted to do).

Just a side note but now I have this back I am being prompted to install SP3, Is there anything I should do before doing this?

Thanks

As long as your computer is malware free, yes, you should install SP3.

The Home version works from Windows 95 to Vista, passing through 98, Me, 2k and XP ;)
