Windows xp pro updating error
Scanned for viruses, trojans and rootkits many times with many different programs.
Microsoft officially withdrew its support for Windows XP on 8 April 2014, after 13 years of loyal service.I have tried setting all services to default like Black Viper says for XP Professional SP3 and all seem to be fine.I have run all Microsoft Fix Its I could find including and also performed all manual repair steps on that page. Microsoft Security Essentials is getting updated properly but earlier I was getting updates for it via Windows Update also.This is where were tackle the question “what should I do if I am still running Microsoft XP?”For an OS that’s three releases behind the times, this shouldn’t be big news, but XP has proved remarkably tenacious.Microsoft is conducting an online survey to understand your opinion of the Technet Web site.
If you choose to participate, the online survey will be presented to you when you leave the Technet Web site.
We have posted about it at following link: I have received a few mails mentioning a strange problem which occurs while installing SP3 in Windows XP.
A few people told me that whenever they try to install SP3 in Windows XP, Windows shows following error message: The reason behind this problem is that the update package installs retail bits on retail builds and checked bits on checked builds. In right-side pane look for a String "Current Type".
But after the service pack 2 update has been downloaded and I try to install it, I get an error message saying "Service Pack 2 Setup Error: Failed to install catalog files." Has anyone else had this problem, or does anyone know how to solve the error?
I use a 20" i Mac with a 2GHz core duo processor, 4GB of RAM, a 250GB HD and Mac OS X 10.5.4.
I need Windows XP on this system so what can I try next to fix Windows Update?
