What are COMPAPI, DtaStor and PT enties in log - V2
In examining WindowsUpdate.log I noticed the following entities.

COMAPI, AU, PT, Agent, DnldMgr, Handler, DtaStor

Near as I can figure:

AU = Automatic Update
WU = Windows Update
Agent = WU Agent
DnlMgr = WU Download Manager
Handler = WU Install 'handler' : Actually installs the update

But I'm not sure on the following;

COMAPI = ?
DtaStor = ?
PT = ?

Does anyone know what the COMAPI, DtaStor and PT entities are?

Have you formatted the HDD & done a clean install of WinXP yet?
