    This is a temporary solution, which removes the offending Windows Update; has worked for me.

    1 boot from your Windows XP CD and start the recovery console (press R when prompted to press R for recovery console or return to the Installer). You may need to press F6 while RC loads in order to load the SATA drivers. you will have a prompt c:\WINDOWS to the console.

    2. type: CD $NtUninstallKB977165$ \spuninst (it's the update, I had to uninstall to get out of the boot loop, other updates can be uninstalled by changing the name of the directory to $NtUninstallKBCODE$, where KBCODE is the code KB)

    3. type: BATCH spuninst.txt

    4. type: exit

  • How can I get rid of the coding that adds more than one page to print email?

    I now get more than just the sender, date, and issue information in emails. What information from "source"? Is it possible that I can print the email without printing the part "source"? I tried to copy what I would get if I printed the e-mail, but it's beyond my skill level. I hope that there is a switch somewhere that I can change to fix this problem.

  • KB 2393802 appears to install correctly, but then the same update is offered and installed it again. It has been installed more than 32 times

    Original title: KB 2393802 will not install and keeps back__

    The windows above update keep coming back and will not be installed. If I check the update of victory it will tell me the update is available (no download, already installed on the machine), I so go ahead and install the update. About 2 or 3 minutes later the yellow flag appears indicating that KB2393802 is available. After the installation it tells me that it has been correctly installed. The event viewer also tells me it installed correctly. So far, in my history of editing, I have 32 incident KB2393802 cela being installed correctly.

    Any suggestions please?

    (the only thing I've done is to rename the Catroot2 folder and restart the system according to the instructions in MS for about 2 years for another machine)

    Original title: KB 2393802 will not install and keeps back__

About 2 or 3 minutes later the yellow flag appears indicating that KB2393802 is available.

    Let me take you, you are under Windows XP SP3. If true, and only if it is true, the following might help you resolve the issue (which is common for all updates kernel on Windows XP computers):

    KB2393802 (MS11-011) is an update of the kernel, and since these are released for Windows XP, MS is not those to install properly for years as soon as it is an OEM System (with OEM drivers) installed on which these kind of updates must be installed on.

    To get these updates for Windows XP is installed correctly on these systems, you will need to download the update from download area:
    * Save * the file in a folder and run the EXE file with the parameter "/ o" (like "/ overwriteOEM"-seehttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/262841/en-us for more details on that and other parameters) subsequently.

    Suppose you downloaded the English version of KB2393802 in a "Downloads" folder that is located on your C: drive. In this case, please restart Windows Mode safe mode (hit the [F8] key after the BIOS screen occurred while starting your machine). Then enter the following information * including * all blanks and the signs of the quote in "Run" in the start menu and press [Enter] or click OK, then:

    'C:\Downloads\WindowsXP-KB2393802-x86-ENU.exe' / o

    After restarting Windows, the update should not be reaffirmed by WU/AU once again - at least after you visited Windows Update via IE and looked for new updates once more.

  • Computer Vista will not complete start up once the updates have been installed

    Office worked well on 20 January, until the update when you restart it should start going to black screen with cursor. I tried to fix it, but it does not work. I tried the system restore to an earlier date but gives the error. Does anyone have ideas, which is false.

    Thank you

    At this point if you have a way to back up your data, I suggest that do you so as soon as possible.  Start the XP that you have installed.  Then copy all your data from the original Windows folder to an external drive or a DVD.

    Then, to try to make this repair, boot from the XP disc and select the recovery option.  This will start you in the recovery console prompt.  From there, you can then run the commands to replace the sam file.  Mike - Engineer Support Microsoft Answers

  • Delete all the files/folders of old install once the last series on the window updates have been installed?

    I have everything, if records of installation/uninstallation and newspapers since I installed XP.

    I'm sure that the last set of Windows updates work.

    Is there a problem with the removal of old files/flies and connects using CCleaner?

    If not all, can I at least remove those older files that the SP2 install date?

    What problems can I hire after cleaned?

    I guess that the answer to MS Office updates also apply.

    Thank you


    If your PC behaves properly, you can remove the hidden Windows hotfix backup files that start with $NTUninstallKB to the WINDOWS folder. There are two ways to do:

    A. manually, but copy files on a CD/DVD first to enable their restoration has a fix must be removed thereafter. Now delete the folder \WINDOWS, but leaves the orphan entries to add / remove programs intact. Remove only the $NTUninstallKB files that relate to corrections, not those for applications such as Word, WMP, etc.. In addition, DO NOT DELETE THE folder$ $hf_mig.

    B. my preference goes to run a script that also removes the corresponding entries in Add / Remove programs. Once they are deleted by the script, they cannot be restored. Download, extract and run this little scripthttp://www.dougknox.com/xp/utils/xp_hotfix_backup.htm creating a system restore point first just in case something goes wrong when the update of the register.
