[Off topic] Win-XP SP2

Hi Shirley,

I would like to set our XP to the minimalist level.
I would like to know what to have on/off.
I do not have a lot of time to investigate/learn.
Any suggestions?


Thanks,

I'm only posting this 'cause I'm STUCK ... and perhaps either blind or
excessively stupid ...

Win-XP-PRO-SP1 connected to SBS-2003 SP1.

Trying to install SP2 on the XP-Pro-SP1 PC.

Update is being run under full Administrator privileges.

SP2 package unpacks and starts to backup the current system. When it gets
to the registry I get 4 errors on interface keys as access denied. Usual
cancel/retry/ignore options. If I ignore the 4 keys the install fails about
80% through the entire run while installing/updating the system.

Keys are in reference to "Ibackgroundcopyjob, Ibackgroundcopyjob2,
Ibackgroundfile2, etc'.

I've found links to these keys on Google pointing at .net "Background
Intelligent Transfer Service" or "BITS".

I've run anti-virus + adware/spyware and the machine appears clean.

Does anyone have any bright ideas on what might be causing this?

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Todd,

I received different errors doing the service pack upgrade. I ended up
getting the SP CD from Microsoft, and then the upgrade worked fine. It was
free of charge, but took a couple of weeks for delivery.

Good luck!

Make sure the BITS service is turned on in system services. Also take a
careful look at what else is turned off. I run into such issues to because
I like a minimalist startup on a system.

Todd,

Are you running the update locally? Might try disconnecting from the
Lan. Is ISA 2004 running on the server? SBS had a patch for XP SP2 that
let ISA and XP firewall play nice with each other. I have not upgrade
SBS to SP1 yet any problems with that process?

It could be a rootkit. I had one screw up an SP2 update about 8 months
ago.

Delete the temporary internet files folder and the user temp directory.
When deleting the temporary internet files, don't use your browser
options menu, use the windows explorer and browse to C:\Documents and
Settings\UserName\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files.

We are using job templates but for some reason the set up time is not coming
across when we get details. The operation standards are. Is anyone else
experiencing this. We are on 6.10.529 progess 9.1D.


Thanks,

Jim Frice

Todd,

You want to get the CD. I have experienced the effects of the
downloaded SP2. After rebuilding the machines that the SP download
blew up, I got a copy of the CD and have not experienced any problems
since then. I have talked with others with the same experience.

Jeff

Thanks to all for the replies on this. Piecing it all together pointed me
at this solution which is what finally worked.



FYI - the "Subinacl" program is also a hoot to watch run.



Found this on http://blogs.blogosphere.ca/brock/ .



Thanks again!

<http://blogs.blogosphere.ca/brock/archive/2004/09/19/3230.aspx> "Access is
Denied" message when installing XP SP2


So, for a couple of weeks now I've been having trouble installing Windows XP
Service Pack 2. I kept on getting registry errors during the install
process, finally ending off with an "Access is Denied" message, thus, ending
the installation. However, after a lot of searching, I found the following
solution, which actually works, as compared to all of Microsoft's solutions.

Do the following:

1. Download and install subinacl from:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e8ba3e56-d8fe-4a91-
93cf-ed6985e3927b
<http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e8ba3e56-d8fe-4a91
-93cf-ed6985e3927b&displaylang=en> &displaylang=en

2. Create a file named reset.cmd in C:\Program Files\Windows Resource
Kits\Tools folder.

3. Edit the reset.cmd file with the following content.

subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f

subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=system=f

4. Enter into CMD prompt.

5. Enter the following commands one at a time and click Enter.

cd\
cd "C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools"
reset.cmd

6. Let the program do it's work, then run the SP2 installation.
