In SQL Server 2005 Management Studio I get an error pop up that reads "The directory name is invalid."

This error occured after I installed window sp 3 on my windows xp client. I remote desktop into the sql server and tried to open table and i receive the message directory name is invalid. I can acess the table fine on the server but i cannot using remote desktop. i uninstalled sp 3 but i get the same message.  i also did a disk cleanup on the server which i am sure temp files were deleted. i am not sure if this have anything to do with it just thought i will mention it

===================================

The directory name is invalid.

Have you tried restarting Windows after you installed your SP3.

Kindly install SP3 again and Restart the Windows machine to get it fixed.
