Windows updates fails, get "Error 1327 Invalid Drive/M" error when trying to install updates by using the stand-alone packages.

Original title: I deleted the files from automatic update and windows update keeps trying to install

I've done an update for a long time on an old computer unused spare XP and Windows Update said that he had to update a large number of files, so I have left to download and install.  Once the 45 updates completed, I rebooted as instructed and proceeded to clean a lot of old data.  Apparently I deleted (7) files for Office M/S that must be installed, because the Winows Update icon in the status bar telling me I had 7 sto update to install.

Now Win Update always tells me that the files should be updated and starts the process, telling me that they are already downloaded, but it fails every time because they are not where they should be, as I deleted them without meaning to.  How can I do the update for these startup files, or where can I get the appropriate files to allow the update work properly?

Yes, I know it was stupid, but this is the frist time that I asked for help from Windows 3.1, so I don't feel too bad.

I have download the individual Ko * .exe files support, but get an error 1327 Invalid drive / M error whenever I try to install one of them.

Thank you

    Do the following and check:

    Step 1:

    Try to do a Scan of the SFC (System File Checker). The scan will look bad system files and will attempt to fix them, if possible.

    (a) click the Start button.
    (b) type: cmd.exe in the search results.
    (c) right click the cmd.exe file and select 'run as administrator '.
    (d) in the CMD window, type: sfc/scannow and press the Enter key.
    (e) restart and see if that solves the problem.

    How to use the System File Checker tool to fix the system files missing or corrupted on Windows Vista or Windows 7

    Step 2:

    If the problem persists, you can also scan your computer the Microsoft Security Scanner, which would help us to get rid of viruses, spyware and other malicious software.

    The Microsoft Security Scanner is a downloadable security tool for free which allows analysis at the application and helps remove viruses, spyware and other malware. It works with your current antivirus software.

    Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner ends 10 days after being downloaded. To restart a scan with the latest definitions of anti-malware, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

    Note: The data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means that there is a risk of data loss.

  • Several errors when trying to install ANY software.

    For the last few weeks I had several problems when trying to install the software PC games, software, whether antivirus or other software with an .exe installer. A host of mistakes will jump to the top which prevents me to carry out (or) the installation process.

    For example:
    When you try to install Avast Antivirus I get - "an error 31 (0000001F) occurred." "Done last operation was: temp directory.
    When you try to install Microsoft Security Essentials I get - "can't find a volume for the extraction of the file. Make sure you have the appropriate permissions. »
    When you try to install SUPERAntiSpyware I get - "the installation failed. Error reading configuration data. »
    When you try to install League of Legends or some other players Setup is not yet open. Nothing happens.
    When you try to install another game I had - "Setup could not create the directory"C:\Users\owner\AppData\Local\Temp\is-I1SGM.tmp"
    These errors occur when I run the .exe as administrator or not, in SafeMode with networking or not. It seems to be a problem with a temporary folder, the permissions of the user or something like that. Would someone kindly help me out here? I uninstalled MSE before moving to Avast yesterday, but now I can not install MSE or Avast so I'm stuck with no antivirus. Help!

    I'm sorry that BootMedic did not work for you. I figured that if you can download it, there is the live CD when you it burned to a disc. But if you can't do that much, I'm afraid that the only solution is to reinstall Windows 7 directly, for example, of your hidden partition or DVD of Windows system, depending on what you have.

    Back up your data and programs for an external drive or USB flash drive and go from there. Do you know how to do a clean install of Windows, or do you need me to walk you through it? If you need help I need to know your computer type, brand and model, and if you have a partition system or DVD disc.

    Yet once, my apologies that it didn't work and I would like to know if not how can I help in the recovery process.

  • Satellite L300 - 17l - no HARD drive & black screen when trying to install XP

    I just bought a Toshiba Satellite L300 - 17l no operating system on it.
    I tried to install xp, but after the initialization of the installation was told he not found any hard... and press F3 to exit Setup.

    And now I can not install anything, because when I turn on the laptop it seems just a black screen

    :( NEED HELP... PLEASE...

    All you need to do is install XP that contains SATA drivers. The XP you are trying to install does not contain them is why it does not recognize your hard drive. If you can't find Xp with SATA drivers, you can create your own drive to install XP with SATA drivers in a few steps:

    (1) download nLite
    (2) download the SATA drivers for your laptop from the Toshiba site
    (3) find Xp installation (normal that you use for your PC)
    (4) start nLite and it will tell you how tointegrate the SATA drivers in the XP installation
    (5) burn the installtion disk
    Install XP on the laptop to 6)
