JSI Tip 3752. Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 has disappeared from Add/Remove Programs?

If you upgrade to the Internet Explorer 6 preview, from a computer that ran Internet Explorer 5.5 and Windows 2000 Service Pack 2, the SP2 entry in Add/Remove Programs is erroneously removed.

If you then reinstall SP2 without using the Backup feature, Internet Explorer 6 disappears from the Add/Remove Programs tool in Control Panel.
