"Database corrupt installation" - discovered after failures repeat the installation of automatic updates of Windows

We're running out of WinXP SP3.  Apparently, we are unable to install/uninstall anything correctly.  I think it may have something to do with "a basic installation damaged."  I got this error when trying to manually install KB972581 (a security update for 2007 Microsoft Office System).  This could have been caused by running the Windows Installer cleanup utility, I didn't have problems with Office 2007.  We were informed at all by continuing to upgrade with another program issues.

We daily use Outlook 2007.  Multiple users, so we can't delete it.

Same thing with KB970895 (update of security for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2) - another failure with the description of the error "Unable to install Windows Installer MSP file".

Basically, the automatic updates of Windows always fail.  Comprehensive research of these forums, I found and ran the Microsoft FixIt! # 50202, without result.

How can I fix anything that makes things installation fails?

I had a similar problem - resolved two things actually. First make sure yu have the latest windows installer engine. Then download the package fails and run interactive mode. This will give you the 'real' error which causes the failure so that you can correct it.

In my case it was a dependency on another file system that was resolved by running sfc/scannow - it's maybe not the question you... once again, run the full installation package and also to enablehttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/223300 logging to track down issues...

    Is the function of automatic update of Windows found in the use of control panel of your compensation for the use of the Internet from my ISP? If so, how? In addition, how to hide an update, I don't want to? For example, I use (and I'm happy with) Windows Internet Explorer (v7), but receive reminders to update update to Internet Explorer v9, which I don't want.

    Is there a way to prevent Windows Update for sending this reminder in the future?

    1. click on Start Orb

    2. in the start menu search bar type Windows Update and press ENTER.

    3. in the left pane, click view update history and check if all updates are installed successfully or not.

    4. If updates failed, then uninstall it and try to install manually and check if that helps.

    Method 2:

    If this does not help, you can try to start on the last good known Configuration and check if that helps. Starts Windows with the last configuration of registry and the pilot who has worked successfully.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer by clicking the Start button, clicking the arrow next to the shut down button, and then clicking restart.
    2. Do one of the following:
      • If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you need to try again by stopping and restarting your computer.
      • If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to select the operating system you want to start, and then press F8.
    3. In the display Advanced Startup Options , use the arrow keys to select last known good Configuration (Advanced), and then press ENTER.
    4. If your computer has multiple operating systems installed, use the arrow keys to select the operating system that you want to start using the last good known Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows will then resume starting normally.

  • How can you cancel the download of an update that was started by after having pressed the button "Check for Updates" in the window "On Firefox", please?

    How can you cancel the download of an update that was started by after having pressed the button "Check for Updates" in the window "On Firefox", please? If possible, please cover all platforms, Mac, Windows, Linux, although the first mentioned is what currently applies to my situation.

    Thank you.

    Such a download is usually recorded in a updates or updates folder in the program folder or the Firefox application.
    You can delete this folder to cancel the download.

    If the files have already been downloaded, then delete the files in the folder updates\0 and updates.

    Mac: /Applications/Firefox.app/updates "/path_to/Firefox.app/Updated.app"
    Linux: "/path_to/firefox/updated"

    When I go to the control panel > hardware & sound > playback, right-click on the device, I get this message:

    "This device is used by another application. Please close all devices... "

    However, I restarted the laptop with no other applications running and I still get the above message.

    It must be linked to the recent update of W8 for 2 days ago that my audio has always worked fine until here. Without having to reinstall all the software, what I can do, as I have not changed anything other than subscribe to automatic update of Windows? (It makes me want to stop the update btw, if the updates affect the normal performance of my laptop).

    A new update for Windows 8 rises to fix this audio problem?

    Welcome to any other measure to solve the problem? -Many thanks.

RightClick > uninstall the "update for Microsoft Windows (KB2962407)" (let others, simply uninstall it) it invite you to reboot, and you should have sound after reboot. "

  • After an automatic update of Windows and stop, Firefox does not remember my tabs open at startup. Better Privacy does interfere with Crash Recovery somehow?

    Better Privacy does interfere with Crash Recovery somehow? My computer is automatically installed a Windows Update at 03:00 and switch off. When I started out, I had to restart Firefox. Firefox came without any of the tabs that were open when the PC went to bed the previous night. I spent an hour looking for what happened to my tabs, without success.

    This has happened

    == Automatic update of Windows shut down my computer in the middle of the night.

    Hello.

    It is possible that it was by force the windows closed so your firefox which makes you forget... Have you tried to crash your Firefox to see if the session is not restored?

    To plant your Firefox, simply there open, press CTRL + SHIFT + ESC and then, on the process tab in the window that appears, complete the process firefox.exe. That will force Firefox to close at this moment. Do start again. If it works, ok, so it may have been a case isolate. My recommendation is to configure your windows does not install updates without your intervention. Choose something like 'ask me what to do' or something like that.

    Had to do a restoration complete my xp machine and will not update, in the past, system automatically updated with cartridges of siema etc service?

    What is happening, it is that it is so more the possibility of a user friendly hands on automatic update of Windows XP from a clean install.  Windows Update will NOT synchronize with and updated in the current order status to update a machine with a clean install of XP, but you separately download some patches and intermediate updates and apply them manually, to have a machine that connects a bit normally with Windows Update.

    Install the last update cumulative security for the version of Internet Explorer you have currently is essential, and you need to download separately and install it before going any further.

    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/2888505

    Scroll to the information file for XP and Server 2003

    Download the file corresponding to your version of Internet Explorer and install first.

    It is also highly recommended that you install Firefox because IE8 is limited, probably compromised and sometimes useless and will crash on many sites, including Microsoft sites, including linked just above.
