Re: security update for IE&
Please state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista SP1) when
posting to this newsgroup.

Chances are that you're seeing the affects of a hijackware infection.

1. See if you can download/run the MSRT manually:

2. Run this online scan (in safe mode w/networking, if need be):

3. Run additional checks for hijackware, including posting your hijackthis
log to an appropriate forum.

Checking for/Help with Hijackware

When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
( is the preferred tool to use (in
conjuction with some other utilities). HijackThis will NOT fix anything on
its own, but it will help you to both identify and remove any
hijackware/spyware with assistance from an expert. **Post your log to,,, or another appropriate forum for review
by an expert in such matters, not here.**

If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.
Start a free Windows Update support incident request:

Support for Windows Update:

For home users, no-charge support is available by calling 1-866-PCSAFETY in
the United States and in Canada or by contacting your local Microsoft
subsidiary. There is no-charge for support calls that are associated with
security updates.

Hello Jack,

0x80070017 - ERROR_CRC Data error (cyclic redundancy check).
Files may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for
installation are available, and restart the installation.

Perhaps some maintenance, try running the "chkdsk /r" command at the command
prompt How to perform disk error checking in Windows XP

Check Disk or Chkdsk is disk error checking . It can be used to
check for corruption and possibly repair errors and bad sectors on the hard

System File Checker (SFC) checks that all XP files are where they should
be and that they are uncorrupted.

damaged or modified.
