tcpmon.ini problems?

I'm trying to troubleshoot installation of SP1 on my Dell Vista Premium PC, error 0x800F0826.I run sfc /scannow and the CBS.log has the following entry

Could not reproject corrupted file [ml:520{260},l:46{23}]"\??\C:\Windows\System32"\[l:20{10}]"tcpmon.ini"; source file in store is also corrupted gives a link to a registry scan - is it safe to proceed? Can I somehow simply replace the file?

I did search the web for tcpmon.ini problems , it seems to happen to other people as well, but I cannot find any solutions

Thank you

Just checking.

In reply to: tcpmon.ini problems? notes a pair of services that must be running. Also, your antivirus can interfere with that install. Your choice here but I've grown tired of the failures so I uninstall that during the SP1 install. Reinstall after.

success at last

Thank you Bob. I followed the procedure as outlined in ( before your post I wasn't sure if it was a good idea to follow his suggestions) , uninstalled McAfee and SpywareBlaster and successfully installed SP1

Question now- should I return Window Event Collector and Windows Module Installer to their original settings?

Thanks again

Why were they disabled?

In reply to: success at last

Since it's needed for updates why would we disable them?

original settings on my PC were
Windows Event Collector - Start up type was-"manual" ; now Start up type is set to-"Automatic", Status- started

Windows Module Installer reverted by itself back to "manual"

HP and others are known for this TINKERING of the stock settings you get with the install of the Retail Vista. You can find too many posts about failures on this...

In reply to: I wonder...

Mine is a 4 months old Dell, (Quad processor), that came with Vista Premium and McAfee. I was under the impression when searching the net that a lot of Dell users have problems with SP1, but did not investigate this enough to be sure
