Registry Key? Windows SP2 Problems, some help would be nice!

    Okay, for several days I have been trying to download Windows SP2 because I
    have turned on Automatic Updates.
    This has been going for several months and every time I have tried to
    install Windows Security Pack 2, the installation stops in a window pops up
    telling me that 'Access is denied'.

    I found out that there was a solution to this problem by finding certain
    registry keys on setupapi.log (or something related like that, I'm afraid I
    am noy a computer expert). And then delete them using regedit.

    My question is, how do you know which registry keys to delete? Are there
    other solutions to solve this 'Access is Denied' problem?

    Thank you!

  4. Hi

    Please see the "Access denied" section here:

    I suggest you start out with the SubInAcl.exe tip there and see if
    that solves your problem.

    SubInAcl.exe tip doesn't work, when I enter it in the 'Run' program, a
    window comes up saying that Windows cannot find 'SubInAcl.exe'.

    Are there other solutions?

  7. Hi

    You need to download and install subinacl.exe, and create a batch
    file that runs it. Follow the instructions in this link:
