Trouble installing Windows XP SP3 and other MS updates

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by DanP, May 18, 2008.

    FYI:

    Symantec tells users: Disable protection before XP SP3 upgrade:
    http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9089658
    There are many ways to accomplish that. Perhaps the easiest would be to use
    SteadyState; see http://aumha.net/viewtopic.php?t=27570
    I'll take Norton to task again for this. See

    not to be a complete simpleton... but, it looks as though i would reinstall all your drivers that you know are complatable with your OS, reformat (save all files on external harddrive if possible) Install OS on clean slate...then questionable drivers last. DEFRAG - START AND COMPLETE ALL UPDATES AT ONCE IF POSSIBLE.. COULD TAKE 25 HOURS..
    :)

    RESTART - FLASH BIOS IF ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY...(LAST RESORT).. NOT PAINFUL THOU..

    YOU SHOULD HAVE A SOLID SYSTEM IN END. IVE BEEN ON WIN 98 - VISTA.. AND WINXP HOME IS THE STRONGEST BOTTOMLINE ENDESTRUCTABLE OPERATING SYSTEM BESIDES MAC OF COURSE... UGH!

    ************************************

    I had the same problem

    As per:


    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.0.3705\Microsoft.Vsa.Vb.CodeDOMProcessor.dll
    775.890: Return Code = 1
    775.890: ExConditionalRunInfProcesses: Error 0x1 while running processes in
    section 'ToGac.RunProcess.ProcessesToRun.'
    775.890: DoInstallation: ExConditionalRunInfProcess failed while durring
    EXECUTE_AFTERINSTALL.

    I deleted all Microsoft.Net Framework installs from Add/Remove programs then
    ran XP SP3 which completed, then reinstalled the latest Microsoft.Net
    Framework

    I didn't figure this out on my own. You can check the following link for the
    whole story:

    Sorry, the problem is NOT the same one that your system was
    experiencing. The svcpack.log file in the post is showing that the
    CatRoot2 subfolder has corrupted data. To confirm that this is the issue
    run the SignatureVerification Tool which will create a log file in the
    WINDOWS directory.

    Click Start, click Run, type sigverif.exe, and then click OK.
    Click Advanced.
    Click 'Notify me if any system files are not signed'
    On the Logging tab, make sure the Save the file signature verification
    results to a log file check box is selected
    Give a LogName like C:\Windows\SigVerif.txt and click OK
    Click Start.

    IF SigVerif.txt shows that system (Windows) binaries are Unsigned, then

    1) Log in as an Administrator or with a User Account that has Admin
    privileges
    2) Start a Command Prompt (Start > Run > type in cmd, click OK)
    3) At the command prompt type the following messages
    3.a) net stop cryptsvc
    3.b) ren %systemroot%\system32\catroot2 oldcatroot2
    3.c) net start cryptsvc
    3.d) exit
    4) Now go into the subfolder {F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}

    %Systemroot%\System32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}

    5) Delete all tmp*.cat files from the folder. (If no files that start
    with tmp exist in this folder, *** do not remove any other files***.
    The .cat files in this subfolder are necessary for installing hotfixes
    and service packs.)

    An XP SP3 system that has no Unsigned binaries in the SigVerif.txt will
    show this at the beginning of the log -

    Log file generated on 10/24/2009 at 10:30 AM
    OS Platform: Windows 2000 (x86), Version: 5.1, Build: 2600,
    CSDVersion: Service Pack 3
    Scan Results: Total Files: 3578, Signed: 2535, Unsigned: 0, Not
    Scanned: 1043

    Most of these errors or presumed corruption issues are caused either by malicious software running or Anti-Virus/security software running. I had to download the norton removal tool to get the heinous Norton360 product off my computer. Upon doing that, everything worked in the installation without a hitch. Norton has done nothing but wasted more money then it has saved for the consumer. I'd rather have a virus IMO...

    Hey HoopleHead EggHeader:

    Why are you replying to a thread from 2008 and changing the subject line? Do
    you really think the OP is coming back and would know to look at your
    subject?
