Preferred Solution: windows installer and service pack 2

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 everyone.

My OS is XP home edition. And my computer knowledge is fairly basic.

There's two things that are concerning me and any advice or help on either or both would be greatly appreciated.

The first thing is I keep getting a 'Windows Installer' box popping up which says 'preparing to install' when I check my Hotmail emails. This problem began after I had a windows update which turned out to be an upgrade to Service Pack 3, last week. As soon as I've clicked cancel on the Windows Installer box, I get an alert from ZoneAlarm saying Windows Messenger is requesting to access the internet. The first time it happened I just let the installer do what it was trying to as I thought the service pack upgrade had made changes to some settings. But then it happened again as soon as I opened the next email (I only open emails from people who I know like my close friends or family by the way). So I'm presuming there's a problem somewhere? Just to note though, it only happens when I open an email in Hotmail, or if I try to sign into MSN Messenger. It hasn't happened anywhere else.
After trying to look it up on google and searching through a couple of posts on here, I'm still not sure what could be causing this and how to stop it. I've scanned the whole system with AVG and it's all clear. Could it be a problem in the registry or in the update I done? Although I have checked my Windows update history and it says the Service ...

Just bought new never used factory fresh PC Acer AXC-605-UR29
Windows 7 Service Pack 1 manufacrtured this year,
I checked for latest updates and sure enough Service Pack 1 shows up in updates



Windows 7 Service Pack 1 for x64-based Systems (KB976932)

Download size: 9.1 MB

You may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect.

Update type: Important

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is a recommended collection of updates and improvements to Windows that are combined into a single installable update. The service pack can help make your computer safer and more reliable. A typical installation will take about 30 minutes to complete, and you will have to restart your computer about halfway through the process.


This is a brand new PC that was loaded with factory Windows 7 SP1 so what is going on here?
Can I simply ignore the update? My only concern is that somehow MS updates will is considering
Windows 7 outdated and that I will receive no more updates since the Service Pack 1 is showing up
in the update section. How the heck is the possible with a factory image. One other thing that might help is that before I could check for any new updates Windows said I required a update to windows update. I
Did this update before finding the lastest updates. Also many updates are post cut off date for Windows 7 SP 0 so it did show updates until December 2014, I guess I will find out it Windows will continue to supply new updates this coming Tuesday...

When the user tries to login into their laptop whether cabled into our domain network or not, they receive a message "there are currently no logon servers available to service this request".  but if cabled into the network and they wait 5 minutes, they
are able to sign in without issue but it takes 2 to 3 minutes to load the page.  I signed into the laptop with my domain admin account and received the same message as the user, but when we tried cabled in (5 minutes later), i was able to sign in without
issue.  The troubleshooting steps:
1.  Updated the network driver today (still receiving same result)
2.  Re-added the computer to the domain today (still receiving same result)
3.  the event viewer is showing the 5719 NETLOGON message and also 1129 (but the user has been receiving this for a number of months)
4.  The only thing we haven't tried is creating a new user profile but the only reason I don't see that working is because if its happening with my domain admin account it can't be a profile issue. 

Any ideas of what could be causing this and is there a fix for it?  I do see there is a hotfix but wasn't sure if we should run it or not.

Hi,
I bought my cpu in June of 08. I have been having problems. I'm trying to fix them one by one. I was wondering if I had the correct Service Packs. Under Windows Updates I can see them all going back to when I bought it. It shows 1 service pack update, KB948465 on 9/19/09. It does not show a 2nd. Under Windows Edition in my System (Control Panel) it shows Windows Home Premium and Service Pack 2.

Can I forget about 1 or do I need it? Hopefully Service Pack 2 includes all that was in SP1 and more! Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm planning on buying a laptop when this version of windows comes out. Now the question, how does this differ from the other 2 versions of XP? Is it better?

A:Windows XP Service Pack 3

G'Day wii zil,

Service Pack 3 for Windows? XP is still in its beta testing stages at this time, and probably will not be fully released to the end user until perhaps May/June this year.
The differences are not noticeable to the naked eye, as most of the 'changes and enhancements' have been introduced for performance reasons.
Service Pack 3 contains all the updates that Microsoft? has released for Windows?XP since the release of the Service Pack 2 version in 2002.
If you are still using Internet Explorer 6, this new Service Pack is smart enough to detect that and will not change your browser.
If you intend to purchase a new laptop, chances are that it will have Windows? Vista? pre-installed on it, so be wary if you do not want Vista?.
I have been beta testing the Service Pack 3 for Windows? XP for the last two weeks, and found only what I mentioned before.
However, I can say that the boot times are a little faster but no great difference.
One final comment, I doubt that Windows? XP will be released as a retail version on CD, I believe that it will only be as a download pack, although I could be corrected on this point.
Service Pack 3 can be up to 363MB in size, but will vary dependent upon the number of 'extra' updates that need to be installed on your machine.
Hopefully this answers your query.

Kind Regards,

It won't be released. Microsoft has released Update 1 though, which is kinda like a service pack. It was released in April 2014, so you should have it already installed.

I was just curious to see if anyone has been experiencing any problems with USB devices when connecting to a Windows 2K system with service pack 3. I have a Delkin Devices Reader-5 and when I plug it into my system, the system hangs for a long time. No error messages come up, but once I access something I can't access anything else. For example, if I go into My Computer I can't access anything or if I even go to my Start menu I cant access anything. I have installed and uninstalled several times but nothing seems to help. Any ideas?
 

A:Windows 2K service pack 3

You might want to see if there is an updated driver from the device maker. When the service packs are installed they can sometimes make significant changes to the computer. Just because a device worked before a Service pack was installed, doesn't necessarily mean it will work without any problems after the update.

Thanks,

My computer which runs on windows 7 cannot download the service pack and comes up with the error ffffffff
Ok I have googled this problem to find that I probably have a virus on my system. I run AVG which hasnt found anything.

So I try to download malayware and my system comes up with the message 'your internet settings prevented one or more files from being opened.'

Yesterday I bought a new canon printer and when I loaded the cd to install the software I got the same message up.

I put this message on the forum area about virus's and was given some great advice but it would seem that I dont have a virus so dont know why my computer wont download this service pack.
Also why I cant open the canon software disc???

Please can someone out there help me. Just dont know what to do.

Saw this this morning....Simplifying updates for Windows 7 and 8.1 | Windows for IT Pros
 
QUOTE a bit:
We’re happy to announce today that we’re making available a new convenience rollup for Windows 7 SP1 that will help.  This convenience rollup package, available to download from http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=3125574, contains all the security and non-security fixes released since the release of Windows 7 SP1 that are suitable for general distribution, up through April 2016.  Install this one update, and then you only need new updates released after April 2016.
And since this update can be injected into Windows 7 SP1 media, it’s fully supported to mount a Windows 7 SP1 image (WIM file), then inject this update into it.  See https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd744559(v=ws.10).aspx for the details of how to do this.
This convenience update is completely optional; it doesn’t have to be installed and won’t even be offered via Windows Update – you can choose whether or not you want to use it.
To apply this update, you must install the April 2015 servicing stack update for Windows 7 (KB3020369).  You can read more about the Convenience rollup update for Windows 7 SP1 here.
We hope that you find this convenience rollup package useful.  This same convenience rollup also applies to Windows Server 2008 R2.

Hi all. I just installed Service Pack 1 and it has corrupted my 32 bit files in that I am getting an Error Message: This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. If one is alredy installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel. This has popped up even when I try to go to Windows Explorer or C:\ or its subcategories.
Has anyone had a similar problem? Is there a fix? TIA, Ed Weidman

A:Windows 7, Service Pack 1

Hello Ed, and welcome to Seven Forums.

See if downloading and merging the lnk (LNK) and exe options in the tutorial below may be able to help after a restart. They will restore the default asscociations for these file extensions.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,

I'm not sure if this has been posted or not, but I felt like bringing it up. It seems to me Windows 7 could be a service pack. I have tried the vista sp2 beta and it is nothing like windows 7 7000. One thing that makes me think it might be a service pack is the mojave experiment. I think MS is being sneaky again.

Ex) When I watched the Mojave experiment videos really closely I saw that the calculater in the experiment was like the one in windows 7. I was a little tweaked off because of that-they were showing those people a prettier interface than vista had and calling it vista. I remember updating my computer and then eventually trying sp2 beta looking for the pretty calculator. Where did I find it? Windows 7 7000. I'm not sure what Microsoft showed people in the mojave experiment but it was not vista. I think they are hiding something.

It could be like mass scale mojave.

A:Is windows 7 a service pack?

7 is not a service pack. It is based on the Vista kernel but it is a different OS in it's own right. A service pack is a service pack.

I am still running on Windows XP Service Pack 1 because I think I can recall installing the Windows XP Service Pack 2 once before and my system ran too slow or there were issues with that. Programs I need won't allow me to download/install them (Like ok, my brain just froze...the program that allows you to watch video clips, or video clips from a digital camera....the name of it just left me, so sorry) unless I upgrade to Service Pack 2.

What could be some problems that I could experience if I upgrade? Do I have to do that?

What brand and model is the pc. I have yet to see SP2 or SP3 cause issues on a uninfectd pc. Without the new service packs you are wide open to infections

I have tried repeatedly to download xp2 service pack. It seems to download fine. When the computer restarts the desktop comes up as normal but after about 30 seconds the icons disappear and do not return. I then start in safe mode and restore to a previous date. Can anyone tell me what the problem is? Thanks for your help.

I would suggest, going to Microsoft download center and downloading SP3. It will update your computer, including updates since SP2. Even if you succeed at installing SP2 you will have to spend a LOT of time updating.

Error Message I am recieving:

""Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.

What you can try:
Diagnose Connection Problems ""

I diagnosed Connection Problems and this came up:
Windows cannot connect to the internet using HTTP port (80), HTTPS port (443), and FTP port (21). It suggests that my firewall is at fault.

I recently downloaded Service Pack 2. Now I get this message. I tried opening these ports and adding them to my exceptions list for blocking. I even turned my firewall off. But this error message keeps showing. As a last ditch effort, I tried removing SP2 from my computer, but I received a message stating that it cannot be removed!!!

Help!! Anyone!!!

Howdy faattat,
Do you run your own firewall? If so, Win XP service pack 2 runs a firewall as well and if it hasn't recognised yours, you might want to close down the firewall from XP in the security settings. I also found popup blocker was a little more trouble than it was worth. Apart from that, few problems. You might want to visit support at Microsoft site for the list of programmes that conflict with SP2 in case you have anything on that list installed on your computer. Also, have you looked at the other forums on SP2 problems?
Regards...
