Window XP crash while updating SP3 and other updates
I went to Windows update to check for updates. found 26 updates plus SP3,
check all and started downloading. It downloaded all the files then started
the installation, then my PC went blank and it rebooted the PC all by itself.
I get back the windows update website and it has all the files listed to be
downloaded but it states 0 time download. I check my windows version and its
still SP2. What can I do to solve this problem?

Thanks

Eddie

Re: Window XP crash while updating SP3 and other updates
First mistake, IF I read your post correctly.

SP3 should be installed separately, never with any other updates.

The SAFEST way is to use the ISO download that you can write to CD (IF
you have a good CD writer program, like NERO) that creates an Autorun
SP3 Install CD. I suggest you do this anyway so you have the CD for
future use if necessary.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

OR, you can download and SAVE, the installer EXE.

https://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...DisplayLang=en


Second, when loading numerous updates, especially in the case of SP3,
you MAY consider using [Custom] update option, deselecting all, then
select 3 to 5 updates at a time. Install just these, reboot your system
required or not, then repeat the operation until all updates are
installed.


Try this, from Microsoft Update Help:

regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wups2.dll
regsvr32 wuweb.dll

You could use [Start], Run, BUT.... BETTER; copy/paste all to Notepad,
Save to "File type" All, filename UpdateFix.cmd

Then you can run UpdateFix.cmd to fix update loads. This is how I
corrected the same problem on my home system in a separate context (not
SP3).

Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update, from Microsoft
Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you perform a new Windows XP
installation or you repair a Windows XP installation
