    To get rid off a multitude of problems on one of the XP machines I decided to
    do a reinstall from the vender (Dell) disk.
    Most of the updates downloaded fine but I can't get these last 3 to install
    so that I can get to SP3.
    Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 - error code - 0x80246007
    Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 1.0 Service Pack 3
    (KB930494) - code- 0x8007F070
    Security Update for Windows XP (KB902400) - code- 0x643

    I have tried varoius things that were suggested in earlier threads but get
    find anything that works.

  3. 1. Write down what .NET Framework versions are already installed before you
    go uninstalling/removing any of them!

    How to determine which versions of the .NET Framework are installed and
    whether service packs have been applied

    2. Now see Resolutions Methods 1 or 2 in

    If no joy, see this related post by my colleague MowGreen:

    Thanks for the help - I did all of the things you suggested and it was going
    good until I get to installing the MS file KB902400 (error code 0x8024200D)
    This downloads but the installl fails no matter how I try to install it.
    The SP3 SP is zippin along fine until I get an error and it says it
    can'tcopy file cbcatq.dll and won't let me make any changes to it except to
    ignore and then I get the same message for file CLBCATQ.DLL
    What I am thinking is that because the reason I started all this restoring
    was because of multiple trojans, that even though I seem to have rid the
    machine of them that somewhere lurking in one of the files is a trigger that
    is repeling these downloads because they are the ones that would of prevented
    it in the first place.
    Do you see any hope besides a total reformat?
    Thanks again

    The installer requires more data to be downloaded

    Let's back up a bit...

    Is Automatic Updates offering the WinXP SP3 machine KB902400?

    What problems were you having? Did you use the Dell Recovery CD to return
    the machine to OOBE (like new from the factory) state?

    Did you install SP3 via Windows Update or Automatic Updates?

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed? What
    anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)? What third-party firewall
    (if any)? Were any of these applications running when you installed SP3?

    Multiple trojans and hijackers from teen use - pages always redirected to
    page selling spyware 'fixer' i.e. cyberlog- x virus scam
    no downloads were allowed from any site or from CD and were aborted by
    I used the install clean XP from the Dell disk when I had removed the crap I
    could find and had disconnested from the internet.
    Then I went to the windows site and started to downlo0ad all the updates. I
    did have the auto updates turned on and downloaded them in batches that way
    I also deleted all the .Framework and reinstalled all of those.
    I have tried it both ways - also by putting the file on my desktop and
    opening it from there all with the same results
    AVG Free,Zonealarm,Defender,
    I tried both ways - installing with them on and again with them off - same

    My Dell CD requires installation of the Dell drivers, etc., from a second
    disk. Does yours? If so, did you install these drivers?

    Actually - no . Why would that make a diffrence?
    Not being rude - just that it never occured to me that it would matter and I
    was wondering why it would.

    Because the hardware needs drivers to work properly, of course.

    I get that but my problems aren't hardware but software. Although I did get
    the driver disk out and have booted from it and am running the diagnostics so
    we'll see

    Not the same thing as installing drivers. Methinks you need to take your
    machine to someone who knows what they're doing.

  15. If you mean that neither Automatic Updates nor Windows Update is offering
    the machine KB902400, you don't need to install it.

    Thank you for the helpful info - I finally called it a day and did a
    reformat. To p - thanks for the sarcasm - I do try to learn things and would
    never just take it to someone if I could eventually figure it out myself. I'm
    not a moron and have built and upgraded machines for several years. If MS
    software didn't have its own unique set of problems and fixes then I guess
    this group wouldn't exist. So I will leave it to you, p, to take your machine
    to someone who knows what they are doing and I will continue to learn things
