Preferred Solution: Not able to download the hotfix kb961894

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,
In my add/remove I can see HOTFIX SP1 and the windows SP1 update. But there is no file size for the SP1 update, 0kb, does this mean it was once installed and now is removed? What folder can I find it in if it's still installed. How is hotfix related to sp1?

And when you need to reinstall SP1 does that also include the hotfix?

thanks for the advice,

I have been trying to install the unauthorized WMF hotfix patch but keep getting that my system is not compatible with it. Once it said there was a problem with the windows installer package.

I have Windows XP home. I used to have Service Pack 2 but removed it because of errors I was getting. Since removing it back in November, I have had no more errors.
I now only have Service Pack 1. I do, however, still have some Service Pack 2 updates installed. I don't know why it says my system is not compatible with the patch. Can anyone help me? I did unregister the picture & fax viewer as suggested by Microsoft.
 

A:WMF Hotfix

DON'T install the pre-release WMF patch. Microsoft has already issued a notice that the correct patch will be released next Tuesday, January 10th, and for users NOT to install the pre-release version. It was accidentally released by an employee.

Here is the article:

An early version of a security fix for a Windows flaw that is being used as a conduit for cyberattacks was prematurely posted online by a Microsoft employee.

"It really was an inadvertent thing that happened," Fry Wilson said. "We have the security update on a fast track...(and) somebody accidentally posted a prerelease version on a community site. It has been taken down, and we don't recommend customers use it--it is not the version that we will be releasing on Tuesday."

I just have a small concern about the windows automatic update feature and the xp hotfix patches? that get downloaded onto my computer. I have quite the number of hotfixes on my computer, but for some reason, some of the same hotfixes I already have are wanting to be downloaded again onto my computer. Is this normal to be asked to download the same identical patch again, and if so, do I just cancel the patch if I already have it on my computer? Thanks for your help and time.

A:XP Hotfix

Recently, Microsoft had to "fix" several of the hot-fixes previously released, perhaps that's what you're seeing.

I don't let them automatically download, since that can result in a mystery crash that you don't have any idea how it happened. I've had several Windows updates kill systems for no apparent reason, I like to make sure the backups are current. :D

A:hotfix-what is it?

HotFixes are what you download from the Windows update site. The are fixes to Windows errors and bugs and are released one at a time as the errors are found/reported.

This is usually a temporary measure until Microsoft see fit to release a Service Pack.

It is not advisable to "remove" them and indeed some of them cannot be removed.

I did some searching and I see it's not exclusive to the program I'm trying to open, it must a corrupt dll file, or some other system file, as neither reinstalling the program, nor system restore corrected it.

With the advent of Windows Vista, Microsoft praised the boost in energy consumption efficiency in comparison with Windows XP. Still, there are exceptions to every rule.

Reason i am asking is it did say to be absolutely sure this is the correct hotfix.

And there might be another person out there who would also like to know the answer to this question.

If you navigate (XP Pro anyway) to C:\Windows you'll see a list of KB's like '$NtUninstallKB835221$'.

Click the + sign and you get the 'spuninst' folder and in there click the 'spuninst.exe' to run it.

Hi Guys

I posted this before but was asked to post it again with the logs requested. I *think* I've done it right.

My problem is that my computer always seems to be thinking and in my C Folder I now have 13 folders which are named in a mixture of random numbers and letters like: 2e23a2afeaf12393f375ac5430421a. It started with 2 folders and then grew to 6. Last night it was 11 and now it is 13.

When I run my cursor over it it says things like hotfix.exe and autorun.ico which when I google tell me they have something to do with windows nt. However, I haven't run or tried to install it.

They won't allow me to delete them and when I go to Add Remove Programs they are not there either.

I have tried running AVG, Spyware Doctor and CCleaner but none of them have picked it up.

I also started to defrag my computer last night as it was at 84% however, that's when I gained 2 folders so I stopped.

I'm hoping you can help.

Just a quick question, when you say disable your antivirus do you mean turn it off completely?

Below is my DDS file log and attached is my zipped folder that hopefully I've done correctly as I haven't done it before.

A:Hotfix.exe - With Logs

Hello -

Those folders are likely from Windows Updates.

Note time and dates:

I'm going to take a guess that you have automatic updates on, and it's set to somewhere around 8PM

I wouldn't worry about these. I have several such folders also.

Something I see which you should address:

Uninstall the following via the Add/Remove Panel (Start->(Settings)->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs):

J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 10
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6
Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2_03
Java(TM) 6 Update 2
Java(TM) 6 Update 3
Java(TM) 6 Update 5
Java(TM) 6 Update 7
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1

These are all outdated, and security risks by having them installed still. Unfortunately, Java does not uninstall these older versions when you update, nor tell you that you should. Going forward, Java will overwrite existing installs, so removing older versions should not be required after this.

Leave Java(TM) 6 Update 13 alone, as it has the most recent security updates.
