Real problems with Windows Update ...

Q: Real problems with Windows Update ...

I manually update 'Windows Update'. When I went to the site yesterday it just refused to work ... all that would load on the page was ...

"Checking if your computer has the latest version of Windows updating software for use with the website?

The website uses ActiveX controls to determine which version of the software your computer is running. If you see an ActiveX warning, make sure the control is digitally signed by Microsoft before installing it or allowing it to run."
I also had a Manage Add-ons icon just above the taskbar with a red circle and line through it which I've never seen before.


If I leave the page up long enough it eventually changes to this ...


[Error number: 0x8DDD0004]


The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. Take the following steps to try solving the problem:
? Refresh the page.
? In Internet Explorer, delete your Temporary Internet Files by going to the Tools menu and clicking Internet Options.
? Close and then re-open Internet Explorer.


If these steps don?t work, try visiting the site later or using the resources provided below.
For self-help options:
? Frequently Asked Questions
? Find Solutions
? Windows Update Newsgroup
For assisted support options:
Microsoft Online Assisted Support (no-cost for update-related issues)



.... I asked for assistance from Microsoft Support and was linked to this ...

Error that you see in the upper-right corner when you visit the Windows Update Web site on a Windows XP-based computer: "[Error number: 0x8DDD0004]"

I followed ALL the steps to the letter but it hasn't made any difference.

Any advice would be much appreciated ... Thanks

Preferred Solution: Real problems with Windows Update ...

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.)

I have an older Compaq that restarts after booting. I was trying to reformat and reinstall XP. The computer won't let me do anything. Eventually I get a blue screen that says to go to the computer's vendor or hardware-update.com. There's nothing there. Is this just a virus?
 

A:hardware-update.com? real?

No.
Microsoft lost control of the hardware-update.com domain name that was embedded in system BIOS's.

Now it's actually Ultimate Search with sponsored links that aren't labeled as ads, but they are.

Just a case of history not being carried forward to today, and advertisers spotting the opening left.

Hi all.

Just turned on my PC and found this...

I am running NOD32 Antivirus, so I don't expect any surprises. However, this is a strange type of 'update' box isn't it? There is no explaination as to what I'm turning on, which makes me a bit nervous.

Anyone know what it is?

I rebooted my laptop and while the desktop was loading I got a Generic host process error. Following the error there came the usual error reporting window, then following THAT was another one saying that there was a "fix" available for this problem.

The url is from microsoft.com so I'm thinking it's okay to download, and the site is asking for me to click on a link to "validate" that I have a genuine microsoft software installed.

Before I do all this I wanted to check with you guys because when I run microsoft update---there are no updates listed for me to install.

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, but here goes.

Very recently within the past week, I noticed a file called "rnupgagent" (original filename: rnsetup.exe) was added to my real update folder. The file itself is set to shared with an "unknown contact" and also has user permissions set with "Account Unknown(S-1-5'insert numbers here')". Aside from one post from a user on CNET asking about the same issue, there doesn't seem to be any information about this file that I can find.

Any help regarding this issue would be appreciated.

A:Strange file in real update folder.

Did you find the original filename by right-clicking on the file and checking its properties in the version tab?There isn't much info on that file but this appears to be it's installation path."C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Real\Update\UpgradeHelper\RealPlayer\8.01\rnupgagent.exe" "/Install"You may want to contact RealPlayer Support and ask them what the file is for.Until its identified, you can at least check to ensure its not malicious.

A:Real Player downloaded some type of update now won't open

Might be something to do with the new mailbox set -up, check to see if your Anti virus is not blocking this device. 'Real Player' just send out something similar to what MSN do if your logged in to Instant Messenger and you receive an Email. You get sent a 'Pop up' and an audible notice (sound effect) of "news from Real Player" almost like a RSS feed although it's automated.

sounds like your video card is having issues. I would make sure your card is not overheating for one, and make sure your case/video card is not covered with dust.

HWMonitor should provide you with some information on the temperature. Other things to look at is updating your video card drivers.

When I try to open Internet Explorer, it just flashes on then off right away. I can't even copy and paste a file from one directory to another. I tried to do a system restore, but when I go there, it tells me that System Restore cannot protect your computer. Please shut down and try again. Which I did, but that didn't seem to work either.

A:Real Big problems

Not that anyone was in any real big hurry to help out, but I figured out my problem. I guess some type of Trojan got onto my computer and renamed my svchost.exe file to svchost.exe.bak, meaning I couldn't run anything that used that file, which is pretty much everything on the computer. Check this if you're having the same kind of problems that I eluded to.

Basically what I did was took the svchost file from a different computer and loaded it onto the infected computer and everything was fine. It's located in C:\Windows\system32. I know I could have just renamed the .bak version, but who knows what else the virus did to the file. I didn't really want to take a chance with it.

Now that your log is properly posted, here, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the logs you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another Malware Removal Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

Hi, let me start by saying I'm new to this so if I've posted in the wrong thread... sorry, I figure my computer uses XP so post in the XP help section? Second of all, it's become fairly apparent that I have little to no idea about anything to do with computers. So here's the problem: A week ago whilst enjoying an episode of the uni on my computer it blue screened. It's happened before so I wasn't too worried until I tried to boot it up again, no dice. It opened to this screen that it opens to every other time the computer starts, the express gate screen. It's an ASUS motherboard... I think. And you can either not move your mouse and let it get into the bios then eventually into xp OR you can click one of a few buttons that either take you to skype, the express gate internet browser bios set up.. blah blah blah. Anyways, I let it boot as usual but it got to the bios then didn't go any further. I plugged in a different monitor and it did the same thing, only this time I could see a blinking white underscore, it doens't move past this point. I went into the BIOS set up and... well, didn't do anything because I have no idea what any of it means. Then I plugged in a DVI to HDMI cable and plugged the computer into a HDMI socket on my monitor, it skipped the express gate screen and went right to the bios scree, then went to the very first opening screen like it had reset itself, then went to the bios screen, then to the white underscore thing again. So my question is what in the hel... Read more

when you got to the BIOS screen did the hard drive show? Go to the website of the hard drive manufacturer and download their diagnostic program, and burn to disk as a .ISO.

I downloaded Real Player on my Win98 system, but I cannot get it to run. When I tried uninstalling it, I received the message that an uninstaller component was missing. Now I cannot get the program to run, and I cannot uninstall it. I presume that if I an get it completely ininstalled properly, I can download it again and install it properly. Does anyone have a solution for me. Thanks.

greetings:

I've been experiencing a rather odd problem with my real player recently. My player crashes every time I to load a .rm or ram. file from a web site. The normal troubleshooting hasn't worked. Failed attempts of removing all "Real" releated programs and reinstalling them have been quite frustrating. Does anyone have advice on how to alleviate the problem. Possibly a setting in the registry that is causing windows to automatically shut down real when launched. I can write back with the general fault code if that would be of any assistance.

Hi,

I had XP Pro running on my machine (for about a year), but recently decided to re-install as there were some problems i couldn't fix etc etc.
I put in the XP Pro disk (when in windows) and it said it was going to restart my machine in order to install windows. It did restart and install windows (although a little too quickly for my piece of mind - perhaps not a full install?), but now i have apparently TWO versions of Pro on my machine.
Ok, so i thought i'd simply format my HDD and re-install, only i can't. I have no DOS and whenever the install tries to format the drive i want it to it says it can't because there are temporary files needed or something.

So, i can't get into windows, i can't use the install CD to format and i can't use DOS.

Suggestions?

Matt.

p.s. i have tried booting from CD, it says its invalid or something.

Just today, I noticed that realtime protection wasn't enabled on Malwarebytes, so I tried re-enabling it with no success. As well, when I tried updating, Malwarebytes was unable to access the update server.
 
A few days before this happened, I tried to download a song from an MP3 site, but instead of it being an MP3, it turned out to be a Windows executable that Malwarebytes detected as a PUP. I removed the PUP, but I think it may still have been responsible for the problem I currently have.
 
Also, when I try to run a scan in Malwarebytes, it gets hung up on some files. If I delete a file it gets stuck on, it'll just get stuck on another.

Hiya,

Initially i was using Mcafee Antivirus software and whenever if we try to update it says updated without any accessing to the internet. I choosed complete scan but it dint find any virus, spyware etc. so i thought to upgrade the software so i tried to uninstalled it because i wanted to install Mcafee Antivirus Plus. But when i installed it, it says that Your computer is secure, but when you try to update, it doesnt check for it. Real-Time scanning and firewall is turned off and unable to turn on the services. Then i installed McAfee Virtual Technician, it says several problem that dat file, registry is missing and when you try to fix it, it doesnt allow. i thought some problem in the software. so i have uninstalled it and restarted it. Loged in Safe mode with networking and installed SuperAntiSpyware Professional v5.0.1118 and Malwarebytes and when i scanned i found a Trojan Vundo-Variant /F. Removed via SuperAntiSpyware. Then i installed Mcafee Total Protection and again found same problem like Real-Time scanning and Firewall is disabled and unable to turn on. Then installed HouseCall-Free online virus scan from Trend Micro and found Troj-SPNR.03CI11 and again removed it. At present found that even Windows Update is unable to update any file, but it says "Windows is up to date".

If you have previously had a trial version of MBAM, you cannot activate the really time protection unless you have a fully licenced paid for version. The new trial or free version cannot be activated

I'm having several problems with real player and Nero 7.

1. With some of my Real Player RAM files I'm being told I need a plugin for the file, I don't know where I get ones to go with the specific file types- does anyone know?

2. If I insert a blank CD-R disc it says the disc is full! I know for a fact that there is nothing on the disc but I am being told otherwise- why? It is a trial version of nero 7 by the way.

3. Nero tells me it cannot cache the files before it burns them, why not? They are prefectly normal files?

4. When I cue several files up on to be burnt to a disc on real player it says "Will not fit on disc". I don't understand, it's a blank disc and I've checked and double checked that there's enough room. There's only a few files anyway and I'm burning them onto a data cd.

If anyone can help me with any of the above it would be hugely appreciated!

I installed lastest ver of Real Player .. and the app that required it worked OK.

However if I for example play a CD ... if I select Real Player to play it back ... sound is OK, but if I select WMP there is no audio.
The issue I have is that all other apps that give audio out (incl Vista OS sounds) do not work.

I tried working through many options ... but as soon as I de-installed Real Player all apps (and OS sounds) all OK again.

Hi Everyone,

I run Windows 98 on a desktop using Netscape 4.75 and I.E 5.0. I currently have had Real Player 7.0 for about 2 years with no problems. I don't know if it's a bad computer day for me or what but here is the situation.

I went to a site that uses a utility called Yahoo Media Helper, this little do-hickey checks the media players on your system and asks your Internet Connection Speed. (I have Windows Media Player 6.1, but also Real Player 7.0) I think real player is better sound quality so it asked which player I wanted to use and I clicked on Real Player 7.0.

Whenever I go to a site that uses Real Audio, I get the following error message:

"Currently, Autoupdate has no plug in to play your selection." I clicked on "more information", scrolled down to my player and it suggested that I install these little plug-in components (Only about 650 kbs...no big deal) anyway, I did that and I still get the same message about the plug in issue. I tried just opening Real Player also, and going to one of the "pre-set radio stations that they give you." Sometimes I get the message about the "Autoupdate has no plug in to play your selection" but just now I get "Connection to server could not be established, you may be exeriencing network problems" I don't know if this is a server issue or a Real Player issue.

Hello all

To explain the problm I have a Linsys wireless router which has been working faultlessly until this weekend and now I am in a position where only one machine can connect at a time as this throws the rest out. No security on the router (temp measure to test connectivity) and all drivers are correct and up-to-date. There has been no problem at all, so rather that run through things that have happened, I just wondered if I am doing something really stupid. Machines are running XP Home, XP Professional (SP2) and Vista Ultimate (I know, I know, but it has had no problems for literally months).

Please help or I may throw the router out of the window

Hi all,

I run windows 2000, and have recently started to have password boxes pop up nearly every time I visit a web page. The addresses the boxes display lead me to believe they are ads of some kind:

ads.msn.com
global.msads.net
www.fastclick.net
...to name but a few.

The first one by the way, appears everytime I visit a page here! I'm pretty sure this is all being caused by the fact that I ran AdAware about a week ago, and deleted ALL the components it found! Obviously it got rid of something that most websites use to link into their ads, but i've no idea what! What on earth can I do to stop these boxes appearing? None of my friends can give me a clue, so you could be my last port of call before I formatt and start again.

Thanks for any help,

Tom.

HI THERE,

Please help me to solve this problem. I been trying to install Real Player but it always saying that I don't have the privilege to access the registry and asking to consult with the administrator. All other programes are installing fine. Why? I did not mess up with the user name or changing it whatsoever. Below is the HJT file. Hope someone can help me out. Thanks a lot.

I was just wandering if you can see the other video clips from the site on-line?
I can't see the video in your link, and that is definatly a direct link to the clip online.
Im pretty sure there is something wrong with it.
Send the site and email and get them to check it and see what they say.

Hi, I hope I'm posting in the right place:

Lenovo t400
Vista 32 OS

A day ago I started getting browser redirects to happili.com

I ran malwarebytes, which found the (apparent) Trojan and needed to reboot to remove it, however on reboot I recall there was an issue and the browser redirects continued.

Malwarebytes could no longer find anything though, and neither could Spybot S&D, or TDSSKiller.

I searched around and found a suggestion to try panda securities free remover for that (pretty sure it was Panda Anti-Rootkit). I ran it and it requested a reboot - said something about a library or dll file perhaps? I don't remember exactly.

Now however when I try to boot after I login at the vista users login screen I get a blue screen that says it is shutting down to protect my system. It will then continue doing this unless I try to go to safe mode -- then i am forced to go directly to lenovo's thinkvantage rescue and recovery.

I am afraid to try anything else without further advice. I'd like to not have to restore my system if possible but can't even boot to safe mode.

If someone can help me out of this jam I'd be forever greatful.

Edit: the more I Google around about this the more I think the Panda Anti-Rootkit caused the issue (maybe because not compatible with system?)

When I tried to play a video stream earlier, I got an error message about a missing file in my Temp Internet files. An attempt at playing an audio stream got the same response. I tried to uninstall Real Player, but for some reason that didn't work, as I got an error message about missing an uninstaller component. When I tried to reinstall it, that wouldn't work either, as when it had to uninstall Real Player, the aforemention uninstaller component error occured. I tried redownloading the latest version of Real Player, but the same error occured, and when it did install, my attempts to play streams cause AOL to crash, and it won't play regular RP files at all.

What has happened, and what can I do to fix this ?
