    I am having problems with my PC (Windows XP) and have run all my scans etc to
    check for viruses and it has found nothing. (Ad-aware, Symantec,
    Spywareblaster also cleared out cookies and tif's, done PC disk clean up and
    defragged).

    My PC will start up but is then dead and I can't do anything. I can't even
    shut down - I have to switch it off manually (and even to do that I have to
    press and hold the button for about 10 seconds before it actually shuts
    down!!). I have left this msg whilst in safe mode.

    When I try to update Windows in safe mode I get this 0x8007043C error code.
    Have read all the questions and answers on here and the reply is always the
    same - you can't do it in safe mode.

    When that's the only way I can do anything at all with my PC, how else can I
    sort this problem pls???

    If updating Windows won't help to sort out my PC, any other ideas other than
    sending it away to get it fixed??

    All help greatly appreciated.

    Your problems do not appear to be related to WU. Perhaps you could post to a more
    appropriate NG or in the alternative, take the computer to be fixed.

    I am having this exact same problem. What did you find to be the problem
    with your computer? How did you fix it?

    0x8007043C
    Means: ERROR_NOT_SAFEBOOT_SERVICE.
    Translation: You need a service which is not available in safe mode.

    I understand the meaning of the code. I need to know if ARichards found out
    what was causing his problems in normal mode. All of his symptoms are the
    same as mine. I've run all the same things to try and correct the problem
    and have had no luck. I received the code when trying to run a security
    download in safe mode. I cannot operate my computer except in safe mode
    right now. Any insite would be appreciated!

    For the benefit of others - "dmac" has posted to a thread that was made on
    18th October 2006 and is awaiting a response from the OP.

    IMHO, "dmac" start a new thread and maybe post to a more appropriate
    newsgroup for your problem and you may get a response that is helpful.

    I know exactly what you mean, I have found zero responses to solve this
    issue, my machine just winked out, now, like you it will only boot in safe
    mode or with networking.
    Having read other replies, its not about where you put this problem its
    about Microsoft resolving this for you, you are like me, a consumer, having
    bought their software, something has gone wrong, why is it so difficult for
    Microsoft to resolve this, I have tried to contact direct, but to no avail?
    Is it that XP is now defunct by Microsoft, we have to purchase Vista or Win 7?
    Lastly, I fail to see the rationale of taking the machine to be fixed at
    ones own expense?
    Hope you got it resolved, if you did, please tell me what you did?
    Have a good day
    Kev
