On a friend or family member's computer with a broadband connection, (it's a large file, about 316 MB), please download the full Service Pack 3 installer for Windows XP from the link below:
Burn a copy of the entire IT Professions version of the file to a CD for use later on your computer..
Now return to your computer with the CD, then make sure your computer is virus and spyware free by running full scans with all antimalware scanners you have. If you don't have them already, you might also try downloading the Malwarebytes installer file and manual updaters on the same friend or family member's computer and copy them to a flash drive. Transfer them to your 'problem' computer and run a full system scan to make sure it's clean..
Malwarebytes Download Link (Clicking on the links below will immediately start the download dialogue window.)
Malwarebytes Manual Updater link
When the scans are done, clean out all the temporary files from the "Temp" folders and the Temporary Internet Files folder.. After that, do a disc defragment to optimize the disk. When you've performed all of the steps above, restart the computer and afterwards, temporarily disable your antivirus program.. You should be able to perform all of the steps above while offline.
Now install Service Pack 3 using the downloaded SP3 that you copied to the CD.. It should install SP3 correctly and hopefully, re-establish the internet connection software.
Hope this helps.
Hi , I'm new to this forum, and after trying about 20 names
I finally had the monstrosity that you see chosen..
Is there anyone in the forum who can help me with this problem?
I have had Windows XP on my computer for 3 years, during that
time I have had no problems with updates.
A couple of days ago updates were running when I got the following
Service pack 3 setup . Access denied1! Microsoft will now un-install
the current updates.
At this point I was in a hurry to leave and shut off my computer
thinking that when I started up again, the updates would resume
Instead on startup I was denied access to my broadband IP,
The following information was in my network connections box.
Unavailable Device missing
Lan or High speed Internet
Via Rhine 11 Fast ethernet adaptor.
I have failed to find the file or
string: WAN Miniport (PPPOE). so I can
I wonder if anyone has had any experience
with this sort of thing regarding updates?
Why was I denied Service pack 3.
And why was I denied service to my IP when
i restarted my computer, instead of updates
simply continuing to do it's thing?
Will I have to re-install windows XP to
get around this. Or is there a Microsoft
engineer out there that can direct me to
Any suggestions will be appreciated..
