After installing SP2 , all the dial-up network connections went missing. So I tried to re-input and got this error message...<<< Unable to create the specified connection. This can be caused by insufficient memory or not enough disk space ..>>>. Check my disk space and it shows 1.7 GB.
Please help...

    I suspect a dialer hijack or restrictive ISP software
    Uninstall SP2
    Check for viruses
    Check for trojans with Adaware from and/or Spybot from
    Resolve problems found above
    Check that IE's Internet Connection Wizard works
    If not
      Disconnect from the network
      Put in your XP CD and at a command prompt type SFC /scannow
      and reboot
    If you have an Intel nic, update the driver and proset software
    Check that IE's Internet Connection Wizard works
    If not reinstall IE6 SP1
    Check that IE's Internet Connection Wizard works
    If it is working, reinstall SP2 and see if connectivity works again.

    I wrongly install the beta version of SP2. Therefore I'm going to uninstall XP SP2 and revert back to the original OS.

    Thanks and cheers...
