Software Distribution Program help please

Q: Software Distribution Program help please

I just got hired by a company and it is an accounting firm. They currently do not have any way of pushing updates out to there users. They make instruction for them and tell them were the exe is located. We all know how that works, people don't do the updates and then are behind 5 or 6 versions. They use WSUS for windows update. I am not familiar with any software distribution packages that are out there. Can someone help me out.


Preferred Solution: Software Distribution Program help please

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.)

Hi folks, I have a few questions about C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution.old. The folder is 456MB.What is this, and can it be deleted? I think it has something to do with Microsoft updates. I should clarify something: I have TWO Software Distribution folders. A few months ago, after the folks at the HiJackThis forum helped me clear up a malware infection, I started having some problems with some Windows functions. A Microsoft techie solved the problem, but in order to do so he had to create two "Software Distribution" folders. He named the one that already existed "Software Distribution.old" (this is the 456 MB folder), and created a new one: "C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution".After he created the ".old" folder, the problems I was having cleared up... so his solution seemed to work. So can I now delete the ".old" folder?Thanks a million, D.

A:Software Distribution Folder

Most likely you can delete it without any issues. But I'd recommend moving it to another location for a week or two to see if you need it. Then, if you still don't need it, delete to the Recycle Bin - where it'll remain until it's forced out (thereby providing a measure of extra protection).

I want to remove this from my computer. Can this be done?

Read other answers

I posted earlier today about a current situation and while awaiting some help, I went to system restore to see what has been done the last couple of months. Went back to December and each month, this "Software Distribution Service 2.0" has appeared. I cannot find out what this is about. It appeared in Dec, once in Jan, twice in February.

Anyone tell me what this is?
HP Pavilion 526X

If I have done something wrong that has caused the freezing of my computer, If I did a restore back to December, would I mess stuff up? Would it backlog all updates etc?
Please forgive me but I an a novice.

A:Software Distribution Service 2.0

I believe that "Software Distribution Service 2.0" is Windows updates creating a restore point. You should see them on the second Tuesday of the month or shortly after.

I would avoid going back all the way to December. When did the problems start?

For about the past couple of weeks I have had some strange things happening with my Gateway laptop running XP (Media Center ver 5.1 - SP2). Strange by intermittently not recognizing external USB components; keyboard & mouse. Just strange. Slowing down, taking a long time to load programs & files - just like there are too many cookies reporting in. Then upon calling up the task manager it appears with no top headings - including the exit "X". The only way to exit was to highlight the Task Manager and click the "End Process" button.

Had a blue screen event with XP doing a HD check disk!

Yes I ran a virus scan and Ad-aware with no problems showing up.

There are discussions on the web about problems with SDS 3.0 and suggesting using the restore point to remove it. Take a look at (can I do this)...
and read "squirekat's" comments.

I also read that MS has a program you can download to remove it!!!

Oh! SDS 3.0 was installed on my machine on May 13th. I'm anxious to hear from you so I can decide whether this is happening to a lot of you or just some "thing" that's on my computer. I value your input... thanks.

Regarding your video problem.
Option one go to control panel /system / hardware / device manager
Locate your video card under display adapters
Select it and choose remove
One all video adapters are removed restart your computer and let windows find it , search for and install the best driver it can find.

Option two would be to go to the video card manufacturers web site and download the latest driver pack.

My sister whom is in university has a laptop. This laptop is 1.5 years old and has been working perfectly until currently. It seems that while she was sleeping an autimatic update was installed on her computer concerning Software Distribution Service 3.0. This update has dramatically affected the performance of her computer. The computers internet explorer is not working anymore event though she is getting the distribution from the provider even though it was working fine before hand and also the icons are not shown on her desktop. So she asked me to help her fix it. I tried system restore but it wont restore the computer at any points, my suspicion is because it is a Microsoft thing. My sister really needs to have the internet for university and this thing has messed it up. I dont know what to do, but would like some input upon this matter of software didstribution service 3. please reply soon

A:Software Distribution Service 3.0 problem

Read other 7 answers

I noticed that there were many system restore points on my computer titled Software Distribution Service 3.0. I recently restored my computer to one of these SDS 3.0 restore points. (Actually I restored from about 1:00 PM to about 8:00 AM in the same day.) Since there are so many of these SDS 3.0 restore points...I was wondering if they are different versions (like maybe an update or something) of the SDS 3.0 or if they are all the exact same thing.

Note...This is not causing me any computer problems I was just wondering about it.

Thanks in advance!!!

Was wondering if anyone had some information.

I back-up all my DVD's onto an external hard-drive in the case that the little ones mistake it for a frisbee. With all this data on a HDD, I came across the idea of streaming all this data around the house to be viewed anywhere.

I've scoured the internet for a comprehensive package which can decode the .ISO files, wirelessly stream the a/v feed to a receiver and ultimately onto the TV's around the house. Of course I would need a nice GUI (possibly with access to Gracenote database) allowing me to access and manage these files through my TV. haha, kind of asking for a lot huh? :haha:

Does anyone have any experience with this?

A:Audio/Video Distribution Hardware/Software

I've got a similar setup but far less complicated, just use a video out on your video card and send that as a second display, along with audio, into a AV spliter than send it where you want in your house, also if you can get an old P3 with a video out it works similarly but steams the video off your network, my comp is hooked up to 5 tvs using a combination of the two methods and it works flawlesslythe furthest being almost 60 feet away from my main comp, just a suggestion, a little less complicated in my opinion.

Hello everyone,

I don't know what is happening with my computer. My computer does not respond when I try to open programs. I can not even restore my computer to a previous point because "Software Distribution Service 3.0" has been downloading to my computer every morning around 2AM. I did not give this software permission to download. Am I infected????? I have never heard of this program before. I tried to do an Internet search to see what this program was, but unfortunately I did not find anything. Can someone please help me???!!! How do I get my computer to respond when I try to open programs? I also notice that I have a lot of programs running in the background that I did not authorize. These programs are taking up a lot of memory and CPU Usage. I also found that a lot of people are having this problem out of "Software Distribution Service 3.0".

Thanking you in advance,

I have a mission-critical business system at stake here!

I encountered a system crash a few days ago that caused my system to reboot and apparently resulted in major corruption of the registry. I can still operate but it intermittently fails to populate the main program groups (Start menu, Programs, Add/Remove, etc). And it's getting worse.

I need to do a System Restore from a prior date. Checkpoints are there.


System Restore is telling me it "CANNOT RESTORE" the system when I try to restore from a checkpoint date that's prior to the date when Software Distribution Service 3.0 showed up (which happens to have been two hours after the system crash that I need to pre-date -- I let Automatic Updates do the update without realizing I had corruption and certainly without realizing that the update would prevent accessing restore points)!

According to some posts I'd found on the web, this is exactly what others have encountered as well: System Restore won't allow a restore from a checkpoint date that's prior to the date Software Distribution Service 3.0 was installed.

And I have yet to find anyone who has found a way to uninstall Software Distribution Service 3.0 (or find any other way for the System Restore to occur).

Before I tried to do the System Restore, I called MS tech support to be prudent after the posts I'd seen that said it might not work. I got them to move me up to a level 2 tech, who said I didn't need to uninstall Software Distr... Read more

Hi,My laptop is choking to death. It started wheezing with internet explorer, but now it has full blown internal pneumonia.I haven't gone through the advice in the slow computer guide yet but did run disk cleanup and defrag.I took a look at my running processes and found 4 sets of svchost running. Checking into Google, I found some thoughts that this may be happening each time I run antivirus software. Unfortunately, MS doesnt tell you what to do (unless you would like to call their help desk to get the hotfix).Any ideas?Note: Since this post I did find the svchost article on BC...Thanks! Wonder why MS has the article saying it is due to virus scans?Also: I found software distribution service on my restore point recently. I have seen some articles claiming this to be bad news. So...are these the culprits? How do I deal with them?Deb( is this the appropriate place for this topic? )

A:Svchost Quadtripled And Software Distribution Service Killing Me?

Hi MystyDeb.

You have probably figured out by now that svchost is usually a legitimate generic name for some of the services running on your machine. My machine is running 6 at this moment.

If they are being run by SERVICES or similar (in capital letters) they are probably legitimate and no worry. If there are different instances running, then they will need further investigation.

Let us know what you find. Cheers

XP SP3 in place. Thursday night 05/11 Software Distribution Service 3.0 was automaticlaly installed. Friday PC started crashing by switching off completely (no blue screen).
Sometimes it simply won't re-boot and needs leaving alone for a while.
Sometimes it does re-boot and will stay on for 5-10 minutes and then crash and switch off. no error message, no blue screen.
Start in safemode and leave it and it will crash soon.
Unable to run antivirus or MBAM. Last antivir virus scan was successffuly run (negative on 04/11). I have no doubt it is caused by SDS 3.0 which I have researched. I am planning on restoring system to 04/11 but I have also read on various forums that either they were not able to restore pre-SDS 3.0 or if they did, it would re-appear the next day.
Please provide solution to either:
* re-store + prevent SDS 3.0 showing up again or
* patch/fix to add on top
bearing in mind that I have no more than 5-10 minutes, even in safe mode before it crashes again.
thank you
P.S. KB976749 was also installed on 05/11. is that the same as SDS 3.0?
I was also able to get a highjackthis log but that is it. I can provide if it helps but I am not convinced problem is on malware side, more on MS updates...

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to this Tech forum but am frustrated and hoping someone can help.

Last night at 3am (and I've seen similar postings on google but no assistance), my computer ran an update (I know to now turn off auto updates)... As a result, I have lost all files I had in a back up folder connected to my old hard drive (new hard drive and link to old hard drive).

Just gone. All of my media files and pictures are missing. I did a system restore and it did nothing but did say the last update was a Service Distribution Service 2.0. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

A:Software Distribution Service 2.0 - Now lost all pictures, media files

This same update actually crashed my machine. I had to run a chkdsk /f in order to get it up and running again.

Perhaps your issue is similar, to run chkdsk, go to the Start Menu and select Run type chkdsk C: /f then click OK. Chkdsk might not be able to lock your drive for a scan and will prompt to run at next reboot. Just type Y press enter and reboot.
Substitute C: for the drive letter with the problem.

Thanks, I'm aware of the significance (or lack of) of this folder, and I realize I could just drill down to it and manually dump the contents. I'm just looking for a more elegant solution.

Incidentally, the folder seems to named 'SoftwareDistribution' on my XP machines, but 'Software Distribution' (with a space) on my Win7 pc. Maybe just a glitch in the matrix?

Cheers :-)

I have all up-to-date AV (Microsoft Security essentials) on my machine and have run it and Malwarebytes at regular intervals. I've never had any problems however recently Malwarebytes threw up 3 odd things, Didn't look like anything too significant but I elected to "remove": before noting what they were and now Malwarebytes gives the all clear, as does a full AV scan.

However I also ran a GMER scan which I include below, which pointed to something strange in C:\Windows\Software Distribution\Event cache.

I also recently did a Windows update manually, even though I have it set to Automatic updates. I was surprised to see I had 22 updates needed. I downloaded and installed these without trouble. I checked my Automatic updates and it is selected to download and install the updates automatically, at a particular time of day. However all the options to change this - the day, whether to do it automatically, or not at all is all greyed out.

I'd like to get the Automatic updates configuration available again and to confirm that I can have Automatic updates working.

Would it be safe to delete all the files in the event cache, (or just the ones listed below in the Gmer output) or alternatively, the registry key that is referred to in the Gmer output below? Would this clear the issue or what other steps should I take?

Here is the GMER output:

My XP Pro began acting strangely lately: on bootup, a black DOS window for GoogleDesktopUpdate.exe is staying open for a very long time (no activity in the window); intermittently I had nothing in my QuickLaunch toolbar or in my Programs group or even at one point not even anything at all in the Start button; intermittently the Add/Remove window failed to populate with anything; and all my QuickLaunch icons got scrambled (least of my worries of course but part of a much bigger problem).

Recent events that could have led to this include having had the system go into a spontaneous reboot on it's own while I was working in a complex video editing program (I assume it had a bug or the system hiccupped when I hit spacebar to play an audio file). When the reboot that that incurred was done, I got a warning saying XP had just recovered from a "serious" system error.

Looking in my System Restore list for what took place recently in there so I can decide when to try a System Restore from, I notice a few innocuous things that were added since the date I want to do a System Restore from (innocuous because I can uninstall them before doing the System Restore and then reinstall them afterwards, which I assume is the best way to go -- a Symantec web help assistant and, if I choose to go back farther in time, iTunes).

However, it shows one potentially problematic entry dated yesterday, and I need to restore from at least a few days prior to that.

I have an Dell Inspiron Computer running XP Home. I do not have a problem with Windows programs but the one program I need most - Business Vision Encore 3.2 has all of a sudden become unresponsive.

I can get into the program - no problem but once in it just hangs and finally a message comes up saying " this program is not responding ".
I do not understand what has happened. This occurred on Dec. 18/11
and I have tried everything I can think of but still no result. Since this is
an older version of the software the manufacturer will not offer any help.

I tried reinstalling the software and then adding the data files but this hasn't changed anything either. I also tried " system restore " but apparently it does not work on my computer . Perhaps if I could correct that problem - it would fix this one . Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Try un-installing the software again and this time, also delete the registry keys that deal with the software in the registry. When you do this, make sure to make a backup of your computer registry. Then, try re-installing the Business Vision Encore 3.2 software again and see if it will work for you. How much would it cost for a software upgrade, if you don't mind me asking?
