windows service pack 3
i try to install it but i get the message
access denied,(no error code), i click OK and it comes up sp3 failed to install.
the thing is, sitting on my task bar it shows updates ready to install and its the same thing i am just going around in circles, any help would be most grateful.

i got this info from Msoft web site

1. Make a backup of your registry.
2. Download and install subinacl.exe.
3. Create a file called reset.cmd with Notepad. Copy the text below into the file reset.cmd and run reset.cmd with administrative rights (it may take a LONG time):

cd /d "%ProgramFiles%Windows Resource KitsTools"
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %windir%*.* /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
secedit /configure /cfg %windir%infdefltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose

subinacl.exe can be downloaded from microsoft.

Hi Rob,

Sorry for the late reply. We were travelling for most of yesterday and once we got here, the power failed several times. However, the sun is now out, it's 15 degrees outside and hardly a breath of wind. What an improvement [8D]

Now, regarding SP3, I have heard of various people having difficulties with it.

Basically, if your PC has received all the regular updates, there is no reason to install SP3.

3 different PCs that I look after have had SP3 offered as a download via the Windows Update service. In all cases, I have opted to receive it, but to my knowledge, the download has never completed on any of them. I'm not sure why this is, but am not concerned about it, and everything seems to be fine. Maybe SP3 will arrive eventually, I'm not too sure.

Have you tried following those instructions from the MS web site?

I would definitely make sure you have good backups of all your data before doing so, as you may be faced with a re-install of Windows if it doesn't work.

Let me know how it goes,

Grant :)

Hi Rob,

I am pretty sure that Kim aka Pyewacket is in your area. I'm sure she would be able to get your PC sorted.

I would suggest sending her a PM.

Cheers,

Grant.
