Why would you do that?
No one suggested you actually do a repair installation.
I suggested you try the two methods given on the web page I linked above -
nothing more. I even asked you to IGNORE the title of the article. If you
are about to actually perform the repair installation - then I should change
my advice to NOT ignore the title of the article, I suppose.
Here's what I think you should do (NOT A REPAIR INSTALLATION)...
Try method 1 and try to update*.
If fails - try method 2 and try to update*.
If both of those methods fail...
Get the tool and run it and then try to update*.
*try to update:
- Visit http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
- If it asks you to install anything before you see a selection of "Custom"
or "Express" - do so.
- Once you see the "Custom" or "Express" selection, choose "Custom".
- Scan for updates.
- When it lists what it finds - install the critical ones.**
- You are generally safe doing the Optional Software Updates. I suggest
avoiding the Optional Hardware Updates completely.
** If it suggests SP3 - do not do that at this point. Choose to look for
