fail to load sortbls.nlp error after Windows Update froze

Question: fail to load sortbls.nlp error after Windows Update froze

Ran Windows Update on wife's computer today (Biostar A75-MH mobo, AMD A8-3850, 8Gb DDR3-1600, 64Gb Samsung 830 SSD boot drive, Win7 x64) and upon restart it froze at 35% installing the updates. After it did nothing for 30 min I rebooted. It boots to the desktop but with an error box saying failed to load sortbls.nlp. Explorer isn't working, can run any programs, Start menu won't come up, just sits with the blue circle spinning. Tried to run system restore but the 11-15 one disappeared from the list when I tried to run it and now just shows the only restore point as Windows Update Critical Update from today which fails. Startup Repair says no problems.


Any suggestions?

Preferred Solution: fail to load sortbls.nlp error after Windows Update froze

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: fail to load sortbls.nlp error after Windows Update froze

Use System Restore to revert back to a date before any updates may have been applied.

Answer:Windows update that fail to load

Try to restore your computer before the updates were downloaded using system restore. You can then download them again.

If you need more information on how to do a system restore just ask.

Good Luck

Hello

My PC failed, just like last Sunday. I left open the PC, when I come back, a bl;ack screen with the message that Windows to load, maybe caused by a software update

Instal the Window repair disk and reload....

Since , I was not in front of the PC, I can't know what could cause that.

Edit: I review the events observer. I see an error
"Kernel Power" 41
Question:
How could I know the kind of problem that cause WIndows to fail

Anyway to read the chain of events that lead to the problem

Is there a way to find witch software, if there is one, that had tried to execute an update?

Any help trully appreciated

Martin

Answer:Windows fail to load after update?? ( same problem occured last Sunday

Usually that indicates a power supply issue. It most likely is not windows, and your power supply is failing.

The message ?Fail to load module C:\Users\Ron Wolpa\AppData\Local\Icdrsoft\hpboidps.DLL? pops up just after Win 8 starts up.
It started to happen after AVG anti virus cleaned a possible threaten.
I was about to remove from registry then , before doing stupid things , I made up my mind to post a message here ; it is located @ HKEY_CURRENT_USER > SOFTWARE > MICROSOFT > WINDOWS > CURRENT VERSION > RUN under the name ICDRSOFT and data : regsvr32.exe "C:\Users\Ron Wolpa\AppData\Local\Icdrsoft\hpboidps.DLL".
If deleting from registry is not the solution what else can be done ?
Thank you for your support.

Answer:fail to load error message just after windows 8 starts up

It is possible that the threat was a false positive and warrants more investigation.
Select a system restore point prior to when the problem started.

I have an Acer Aspire Ethos laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate x64. SP1 is installed according to system properties (came installed).

Windows update was working fine until maybe June or May of this year.

I have tried a number of hotfixes, several microsoft fixit (automatic normal and aggressive runs), the sfc /scannow in admin CMD mode, and also uninstalled the last ten or so updates. I have also deleted the contents of the /Downloaded Installation Files/ within C:/Windows but that also did not fix the error.

Have also tried disabling my antivirus but that did not change anything, windows update will not self-update at all.

Nothing seems to work. Please help.

Below see a typical update attempt from the log (repeats almost every other day more or less the same.

I was trying to upgrade to windows 8 Pro on my Lenovo G580, as I got my student license from my University. There started the problem, when trying to upgrade from the DVD (burnt ISO) the upgrade immediately sends "Setup failed to initialize the startup folder" error.

So after few searches, I found on lenovo website that I need to install all important updates first. That's where I found another problem, which is my thread about. I tried so many methods until I found this forum.

Few other problems I ran through while trying to fix it alone:
Updating seems like stuck at 0KB total, 0%, and returns the same error after a while.
Can't enter safe mode from F8, it gets stuck at some CPNP file while loading. However, I can enter the safe mode by choosing Safe Boot from Msconfig and restarting the system.
Running CHKDSK from CMD [Admin] gave "F Parameter not specified, running in read-only mode", and then runs normally.
Tried to download and install updates alone, they all fail when trying to install.
One of the times where the update readiness tool was running, my pc encountered BSoD. And once when I was scanning with malwarebytes.
SFC Scannow command scan returns that no violations in integrations where found.
Note: I just ran the SURT, it said installation successful after a while of running it!

Thanks in advance,

Rahmani

The CheckSUR error is a fairly major one! Unless we get lucky, the chances are that you'll have to do a repair install to fix this.


I need to have a look at your COMPONENTS registry hive

Please copy the C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS file (no extension) to your desktop and then compress it - upload the compressed file to your favoured fileshare site (preferably Dropbox or OneDrive) and post a link.

Odd - your SFC scan doesn't appear to have complete properly, either, although it does seem to have fixed one minor file error.

I have a suspicion I know what may be the problem - this may help isolate the cause....

Hi Majorgeeks,
Post malware infection and successful cleaning, I'm in the process of protecting my computer using you 'How to Protect you computer from Malware' recommendations and I find that I am falling at the first hurdle. I can't install any Windows updates and I keep on getting the above error message. I trouble shot for the solution and it looks as if I need to go into the system 32 to check it out. I don't really feel experienced enough, so I'm wondering if you can help me out in any way possible.
Thanks,
Superdan
 

Answer:Windows Update Fail [Error number: 0x80070424]

This is really something you should work in the Software Forum if your PC has already had all malware removed.

However try the below:

Please click Start, Run, and enter cmd and click OK. This will open a command prompt window. Enter the below command at the command prompt and then hit the enter key.

%SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\REGSVR32.EXE %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\WUAUENG.DLL

Now look for the C:\MGlogs.zip file and attach it no matter what happened while doing the above.

If that does not help, try disabling protection software while updating. And if that still does not work, I suggest that you continue in the Software Forum.

Did the best I could reading the posting rules for the forum and the Update forums, but please let me know if there's anything else I need to do.

I attached a screenshot of the Update that has failed to load for months now and the error code it gave me (both are also in the post title).

I was unable to download the SURT as I didn't see the correct one for my system and I wouldn't want to download the wrong one. For this reason I attached a screenshot of my system spec.s so if I need this for you to help me, you can let me know which to download. Also following the links on the Update posting rules took me to this link: I'm fairly certain my system is x32 based (could be wrong) which I don't see as an option.
System Update Readiness Tool fixes Windows Update errors in Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008

Also, I'm not sure it helps but I saw that someone had, had the same Update fail but with different error code. I doubt it helps but just in case here's a link to his thread:
KB2742599 won't install

I did not follow those directions, I just thought I'd mention that it had been on here before.

This has been a problem for a long time now that I've been ignoring and when I got annoyed with it I found this site. I followed all steps in the Update posting guide (except the aforementioned 1st) but let me know if there's any other information needed. Hopefully someone can help me out, thanks so much in advance!

Hello, I've recently been trying to download and install Windows Live Mail. That part was easy, however, upon opening the program, I receive error messages. The first one says, "Sorry, something unexpected happened and Windows Live Mail must close, your most recent changes may not be saved." Then another error box is displayed stating, "Contacts failed to load. Windows Live Mail is incorrectly configured, please re-install." I've uninstalled and reinstalled this program several times, but still not sure why I am receiving these errors. I did edit the registry, deleting the keys for all Windows Live folders insuring a complete uninstall, then reinstalled a fresh download of Windows Live Mail but STILL got the same error messages. I also tried to clear the Live Contacts Store/Cache by renaming the Live contacts folder so a new one would be replaced. Still nothing...This is getting frustrating...Anyone have any other suggestions?  Thanks!

I had to update my bios & it seems that the wrong one was downloaded about 3% into installing the laptop just died & won't go back on.

There are no lights & there is no noise from the laptop at all.

Any ideas on how I can fix this?

The laptop is a Toshiba satelite L300D.
 

Answer:Toshiba l300D wont load up after bios update fail

It doesn't sound like it is fixable on your end. Flash BIOSes that go bad, leave you with a doorstop. You'll hear the statement, "I bricked my computer". This means you turned your device into a brick also known as a doorstop.

You might want to post at a good BIOS site
http://www.wimsbios.com/forum/

People do send bricked computers off, have the BIOS chip desoldered and a new one soldered on. You might be able to get information on that type of service.

Maybe if you contact Toshiba, they will be able to tell you of some companies that do this.

Good evening all,

Just to flag that this has also been posted in W7 Support sub-forum here:

Other thread

Re. the instruction thread - the link to DSS doesn't seem to work, and GMER is for 32-bit only. If there's anything I can do to kick things off, please let me know and I'll do it!

I've googled extensively around the issues I am facing, and tried all proposed solutions, but none have worked thus far.

Symptoms:I have 1-2 minutes of freedom after booting, then I can no longer run new programmes. I also cannot close some programmes e.g. Skype. Tabs in Chrome spazz, flash player dies, and any new navigation ends up with an eternal hanging/loading problem.
Unable to restart/shutdown conventionally (I have to do it physically)
I get the error "Failure to display security and shut down options ..." when I try ALT+CTRL+DEL

Safe mode is absolutely fine, so I assume it's not anything hardware related (though please correct me if I'm being naive). My second drive which runs off XP, which I only use for storage now, boots fine and has no problems.

I have not installed any new drivers, programmes, or otherwise made any meaningful changes recently.

Once in a while, I would try to load an application, for example, a Setup.exe file to install Nero, but the mouse loading icon would display for a second or two, and then go back to normal again without the application starting. No error message whatsoever.

When I check the task manager, I can see the process has started, but I can't actually access the application. What could be the problem?

BTW, I'm using Windows XP.

Hi, my 5 day old E5-571 froze during windows update last night, left on update screen overnight, had not changed by the morning, had to shut down using the manual button, turned on a few hours later, still stuck on the same update screen with no progress shown on the update. Phoned the customer helpline, was advised it was due to a build up of static electricity, told to unplug the power cable, press and hold the on button to use up any excess electricity, then plug in and turn on with a touch of the button as normal. Computer worked after this. Just wondering if this rings any alarm bells for other Acer users? Has anyone else had the same problem, and is it known as a recurring problem? Is this a known fix in the acer community (the unplug and press the start button to get rid of static fix)? Would be glad to hear replies!

My mother bought this new computer today and we hooked it all up and it started all the updates and is doing the windows 10 update and has been stuck at 95 percent for several hours now.  Being it is a new computer I am not sure what I should do if this doesn't finish uploading as there is not a cd that came with it.  Not sure if I turn it off and back on what will happen.  Sure don't want to mess it up.  Any help would certainly be appreciated.  I live 45 miles from my mother so am unable to get the product code off it. 

Answer:windows 10 update is froze at 95%

@motaner Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! Several things are working against you when you first start up a new Win10 PC.First, like the previous OSs, Microsoft is doing Windows Updates every week, so no matter how new your PC is, it sat on a shelf or in a warehouse for some time (maybe several weeks), and it has catching up to do, regarding current Updates. What makes this different in Win10, is that MS has gone with new Cumulative Updates, which are HUGE in comparison to older OS versions, and these can take a LONG time to download and upate. So, last round I did took over 2 hours to complete!  So, you need to wait overnight to see if the PC finally finishes and stabilizes.  Make sure it is plugged in and not turned off during this process. Second, unlike with previous OS versions, there is no way to either choose updates or decline updates -- so there is no way to turn Updating off, like there was with older OS versions. Third, some recent Cumulative Updates trashed PCs -- and MS was finally forced to admit it after enough folks complained on the Internet about their PCs being trashed.  Since then, MS has put out a corrected version of that same Update. If you turn off the PC, you will do a "hard shutdown" and this will leave the PC in an unstable condition.  When you restart it, it will likely just retry the Updates; or worse, it will not boot completely and you will be left with an unusable PC. If ...

My question is this: Should my laptop be okay as it now stands - Even though I did a force shutdown during a frozen update attempt????

DETAILS:

Today I woke up to an issue where Windows 7 Pro was froze on my laptop during an automatic updates from Shutdown last night. It was hung up on 72 of 121.

The laptop is 6 months old and I am in the middle of doing a fresh install of the OS and some software.

I read a few articles online on my desktop computer regarding remedies. Ultimately I force powered down the laptop and then went to this article:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2700567

The "Fix it" went fine and eventually I successfully manually finished 49 updates. The computer seems to be running fine.

One article said I should do a "Restore" to an earlier point. I had yet to turn on that feature so I have no restore points.

My question is this: Should the laptop be okay as it now stands - Even though I did a force shutdown during a frozen update attempt????

Thanks,

Dekade

If it exhibits no problems it needs no cures.

Hey Guys,

Just recently I have being receiving error messages when I start up my laptop every day.
There has never been any problems with my laptop until now, although it doesn't really affect the laptop at all it still pops up?

I get an error message when I move to the desktop that says "BIOS Load Fail" but then i can close it and nothing happens to my computer. I am running Windows 8.1 and I just installed the new Toshiba Service Station Apps. I also checked to see if the BIOS was up to date, and it was.

Any help here? It would be much appreciated, thanks.

> I get an error message when I move to the desktop that says "BIOS Load Fail" but then i can close it and nothing happens to my computer. I am running Windows 8.1 and I just installed the new Toshiba Service Station Apps

Could it be possible that this alert (message) is coming from the Service Station utility?

The service station software allows your computer to automatically search for TOSHIBA software updates or other alerts from toshiba that are specific to your computer system and its programs. When enabled, this application periodically transmits to our servers a limited amount of system information required to perform these updates or alerts.

Probably the message ?BIOS load fail? means that service station was not able to download (load) the information about the latest available BIOS.
From my point of few this is not a serious problem. If you want try to uninstall the service station tool from the system just to check if this would cancel the notification

I have tried every option but my computer will just reboot and bring me back to the black screen with the same options. Sometimes, after selecting one of the options, my computer will freeze and i will have to manually reboot my computer.

On this recent windows update, 2/14/13, my computer froze on the "Preparing to configure windows" screen for several hours. I rebooted normally and the screen went to "configuring updates" and stuck at 67% for about an hour. I got frustrated with it and rebooted to safe mode to see if I could do a system restore and when I did it said there was no restore point back up!! What the hell? So I rebooted normally and now it is still just sitting on the "Preparing to Configure Windows" screen with the circle spinning. I am using W7 Ultimate on a Dell Dimension 2400. Can anyone help me with this issue?

Hi davron94,

If there is no 'Restore Point' available, you may try uninstalling the recent 'Windows Updates' in 'Safe Mode' and try booting to 'Normal Mode' again: Windows Update - Uninstall an Update
Note: Please create a new 'Restore Point' before attempting this step: System Restore Point - Create

Hope this helps. Do reply with the findings.

windows updates will not load - when I try to load non-critical updates they seem to be copied to the machine but the update fails when it comes to updating the system.

Answer:Windows non-critical updates fail to load

Did ALL the updates you just tried to install fail to install, or only some of them ?If it was ALL of them, have you run a Repair installation of Windows procedure, and it was only after you did that the updates will not install ?(As in, you booted the computer from the XP CD, chose to run Setup, then chose "Repair your existing Windows installation" or similar, and Setup completed successfully.).......In any case, if it was ALL of the updates that failed to install, then you probably need to repair Registry entries for Windows Update related files....It would be a good idea to print the following text.E.g. Select the following text, RIGHT click on the highlighted area, select Copy, open Notepad, place your blinking cursor on it, RIGHT click , select Paste. In Notepad's top bar - File - Print.Or use Wordpad for a better display of the longer lines - Notepad can mess that up. Click Start, select Run and type the following:cmd (click OK or press Enter) net.exe stop wuauserv (press Enter)(stops the Windows Update service) regsvr32 wuapi.dll (press Enter) regsvr32 wuaueng.dll (press Enter) regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll (press Enter) regsvr32 wucltui.dll (press Enter) regsvr32 wups.dll (press Enter) regsvr32 wups2.dll (press Enter) regsvr32 wuweb.dll (press Enter) regsvr32 MSXML3.dll (press Enter) net.exe start wuauserv (press Enter) (starts the Windows Update service) Close the black Window.Restart the computer.Windows Update should then work fineYou can save yours...

Some websites can easily be opened but time out, when I try to login with my userid.

Since my computer is brand new (an Alienware 17) I don't know if the computer or the software is responsible, but my guess is that it's an obscure security setting somewere, eventhough, I have tried everything I can find on the net.

Hi,
 
This sounds familiar.  If you run TVSU again, don't allow it to install the Intel storage driver.  I've seen this several times.  For some reason a buggy (or maybe just inappropriate for the hardware) driver gets installed that breaks Windows Update.
 
If you're willing to give it a try, run TVSU and see if it's offering a storage driver.  Don't accept that one but let the others install and see if WU is still running correctly.  If thigs are OK, hide the storage driver.

hey, so for no reason as far as i can tell i started having this problem today. my computer was working fine for awhile this morning, but then a bit later when i tried to open firefox the computer froze for no reason. kinda wierd since that has never happened before so i restarted it.

now what happens is it displays an error that says "floppy disk(s) fail (40)" and i have to press F1 to continue. i don't know why it would do this since my computer doesn't have a floppy disk drive.

then when it gets to the screen that shows the windows XP logo and the loading bar at the bottom (the screen before your desktop loads), it works for a few seconds normally. then the little loading bar at the bottom slows down a whole lot and goes really slow... and just stays like that. the computer won't load past that point, it just stays on that screen, with the xp logo and bar going really slowly!

so, has anyone seen this problem before? what should i do? i don't really feel like reformatting again.

I have been attempting to upgrade windows 10 pro, from version 10240 to version 1607 (anniversary update). I have tried both the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant and the media creation tool (ISO). I get to 96% and, boom, every time it resets and restores my system to where it was before the upgrade started. The error I get is as follows:

0x8007042B - 0x4001E
The installation failed in the SECOND_BOOT phase with an error during PRE_OOBE operation.

I have searched for an answer and haven't found one. I have tried to trouble shoot it as best I can by unplugging everything but my keyboard/mouse, updated chipset, etc.. MS techs haven't been much help. Any thoughts? The iso is not on the OS drive, not sure if that matter. I would rather not have to nuke the system. I hate having to reinstall programs (adobe is the worst). Any help is appreciated.

Your CBS logfiles are generating at a very high speed - and it's therefore likely that you have a huge amount of corruption.
There is no CheckSUR data in your upload - either you uploaded before it ran, or it failed before being able to generate a log.

I have been attempting to upgrade windows 10 pro, from version 10240 to version 1607 (anniversary update). I have tried both the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant and the media creation tool (ISO). I get to 96% and, boom, every time it resets and restores my system to where it was before the upgrade started. The error I get is as follows:

0x8007042B - 0x4001E
The installation failed in the SECOND_BOOT phase with an error during PRE_OOBE operation.

I have searched for an answer and haven't found one. I have tried to trouble shoot it as best I can by unplugging everything but my keyboard/mouse, updated chipset, etc.. MS techs haven't been much help. Any thoughts? The iso is not on the OS drive, not sure if that matter. I would rather not have to nuke the system. I hate having to reinstall programs (adobe is the worst). Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi

I was suckered into the free windows 10 upgrade for my laptop. It failed utterly and have paid my local IT shop for the upgrade to be wiped and windows 7 re-loaded. (They advised don't try to upgrade again)

I have two e-mail accounts. Both worked perfectly before the failed upgrade. After the re-load - one works perfectly. The other will receive but not send. The error message is:-

Server error: 554
Server response: 554 smtp service not available
Server: smtp.hosts.co.uk
Windows Live Mail error ID: 0x800CCC6F
Protocol: SMTP
Port: 465
Secure (SSL) Yes

After lengthy emails with website/e-mail provider the settings for incoming and outgoing are all correct but still won't send. We changed passwords, port settings, made unsecure etc

Back to my local IT shop. On their wifi it sends and receives no problem. Back home, try to send and it still fails.

ISP is Virgin Media. 30 min conversation with their tech man. He can't solve and says the problem is not at their end. It seems to me though that it probably is.

It's been going on now for 5 weeks. It's my business e-mail I can't send on I'm pretty fed up with the amount of wasted time/cost etc. Biggest mistake I made was to accept the free upgrade!

Anyone else had this and resolved the challenge?

Thanks

Hey folks,

Not sure if this is a hardware or software issue, but here's what happened. Whilst browsing, my PC froze with the screen changing to a strange pixelated zig zag pattern. Upon hitting the reset button, my computer now will not load to BIOS, with no beep- it just stays powered on with a black screen. The LED still functions and I can open the CD drive & close it.

Upon doing a bit of research, it sounds like it could be a video card problem. Although the fact that it randomly happened whilst browsing, and that I no longer get a beep on start up makes me think it could be a virus (although Avast! was running at the time)!

Any help as to how to fix greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I've encountered an array of problems. To start, when I try to play an .avi file, real player and windows media player both encounter a fatal error. Thinking there may have been a windows update I went to update.microsoft.com to get updates. I was able to download all of the updates, but I could not install any of them. I tried to install them via express and custom updates on the website, via automatic updates, and virtually every other method I could think of. After researching the problem I came across similar problems with an array of solutions, including trying in safe mode, running sfc /scannow, uninstalling and reinstalling .net, shutting off and turning back on both automatic updates and cryptographic services, changing .dll files (lccwiz & pidgen), renaming the SoftwareDistribution folder, downloading one update at a time, and other things that I can't even begin to think of at this moment, obviously with no success, as well as running SpyBot, AdAware, and Norton.

Are you by chance running a modified Kernel (ie a non original MS OS)?

ntkrlstaforce.exe isnt a "standard" OS file?


"from a malware blog site"
you're using a modified kernel (NTKRLSTAFORCE.EXE). That's not supported by anyone. Since all kaspersky versions provide extended protection with deep ties into the kernel, expect it won't work.
so basically, if you're using a modified kernel:
-if it works: good for you
-if it doesn't: s***s for you

I tried to update my BIOS on my T530 today.  Tried both 2.07 and 2.50 (I'm running 2.04).  I'm using the Windows app, not the BIOS CD.  With both 2.07 and 2.50, I get the following error message: "Fail to do module option. The utility process has not completed."  Can anyone help?  I saw one thread that indicated this may be because I chose the option to keep my custom start up image when presented with the option, but I was afraid to choose anything else.  FYI, now the Lenovo update utility doesn't even tell me there's a BIOS update available...it's listed in my installation history as a successful update! Thanks for any help you can offer.  













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:BIOS Update fail on T530 - Fail to do module option

If you are on Windows 8 it is likely because you need to do a full shutdown. The default is hibernate shutdown for the next boot. Then there will be cold reboot after which if may finish the process. Windows 8 shutdowns are totally different process and the machine is never totally off.

I have had my device just over two weeks. Windows 10 is trying to update, over and over and over. It always fails and gives me an error code. Is this a problem caused by Windows (a quick web search shows a LOT of people are having this problem on a lot of devices) or is it the device? Should I just become an Apple person? Do they have this same nonsense where brand new devices cannot update? Do Apple devices actually run smoother or are they just as bad and even brand new Apple devices have problems?

Now check for updates again. You could also try restarting Windows which should have the same effect. You want a full start from cold so use 'Restart' (not 'Shut down' because that may use fast start up). If you still have problems, see this tutorial...

However, after numerous trials, every time, the installation stops and says "failed to install. error code 0xc0000374".

I've ran the update checker (compatibility), and that gave no problems or errors.

What is the problem here, and how could I solve it?

Thanks a bunch in advance!

Answer:Fail to update to windows 8.1

Jus a hunch but it could be some background process that is interfering with your attempted update so I would suggest the following:

Disable all startup programs via task manager and try your update again. Also unplug any peripherals (including the printer) and test again.

Good luck.

Hello.  first off - thank you for being here! I am stumped by computer problems. I see that the guide says to list only one problem.  However I have many and I don't know if they are tied in to each other.  I have a Windows 7 with service pack 1 installed.  It's a home premium version.  64 bit.  the problems go back a ways but seemed to have started when I began to explore other search engines and downloaded a few to try (slimjet, comodo, tor).  I cannot update windows.  I get an error 80072EE2.  I did some reading and tried a winsock reset.  I installed and ran a MS fixit tool which only fixed one of two problems, but the computer still cannot update.  I can't remember why I ran sfc /scannow - but there were no issues when I ran it.  the other problems that started are that I can't send an email with attachment in gmail. I can't upload pictures on facebook. videos won't play properly on facebook,  the computer is very very slow.  I have run Norton security scans which usually just show tracking cookies which I remove.  I have installed and have run tuneup utilities, malwarebytes, CC cleaner, I routinely run disk cleaner and clear history.

Answer:Windows update Fail

That error means that the system thinks the updated files the installer is attempting to update already exist at a newer version. As with all SP1 installation errors, please stop the Windows Update service, make another attempt to install SP1 (and reproduce the error), and then post your cbs.log file (%windir%\logs\cbs\) showing the failure. You can re-start the WU service at that point.

Am running Win XP Home SP2, I lately had a Trojan horse logged into Zone Alarm so I cleared it, uninstalled ZA and went to re install.This failed due to file Sxs.dll missing.Went to Win Update to see if there was a way of putting things straight and found out that there are 99 Win critical updates that I need to install. Strange as my automatic updates was always turned on and never reported any missing update.They all download properly but when getting to installation poit they all fail, report states 99 updates failed to install.Have tried some non critical ones and result is the same.It seems that Win is refusing to install any sort of update on my PC.Is there a way to sort this out?

Bought three new Acer Veriton desktops - None will deploy any Windows updates - just hanging on the "searching for updates screen. They arrived patched up to August - so do already have the "two standard fixes" for this. We have been advised to factory reset one - has anyone any other solutions.?
