 Can't remove Hotfix (SP2)Q811493

Microsoft suggests removing XP Hotfix (SP2)Q811493 to
solve the related slow performance problem. I can't seem
to accomplish this with Add/Remove (no remove button when
item is highlighted). Thanks if you can help!

Did you look to see if the uninstall folder for this
patch is located on your system:
\Windows\$NtUninstallQ811493$

If it is, you may be able to run the
uninstall "spuninst.exe" from that location (provided
that the patch is actually installed on your system).
If you do not have the uninstall folder as mentioned,
then the only way I know to uninstall this patch would be
to install it on another XP machine and copy the
uninstall folder over to your machine.  Then proceed with
running "spuninst.exe" from \Windows\$NtUninstallQ811493$
Good Luck!

Check in the windows folder to see if you have a hidden folder
$NTUninstallQ811493$

If you have, open it and the spuninst folder inside, then run the
spuninst.exe program there.

If you have removed the folder or lost this file and its related .ini
file, then no direct uninstall is possible - you may be able to do a
System Restore to a date before you installed it
