Actually I was in Outlook Express and it was in the process of "debuging" and 
would not shut down and that is why I pulled the plug.   Now, you think it was 
Service Patch 4?
Two lessons I've learned:
1- When a blue screen appears, pull the memory chips myself,
2- Do not pull the plug when a program is "debuging".

  I think their should be a place for you to go to and complain and get 
re-imbursed for the troubles..If I bought a toaster and the toaster burnt my 
house down cuz it wasn't right, you betcha their would be a lot of recall and 
insurance claims etc..
  if you "DL" a software product by MS and it crashes your computer and cost 
you $ and down time then why should that be any different than a toaster.
  I wonder if in that small prints somewhere it has a disclaimer. Probably 
does.. Evidently that service pack 4 was re-witting your stuff when you pulled 
the plug on it..?
  I know some of these "DL" advise to backup ( theres that crazy word again) 
before you start a install. In case of a power outage or something..!
