    Update runs forever! No freeze, just runs

    I am trying to download Windows XP Home Edition sp2, but when I search for
    updates, it never stops searching! it doesn't freeze up, it just
    goes.....all night long it searched. I never get automatic update reminders
    either, what's going on? I would say it has something to do with all that
    spyware crap out there.....HELP.

    Hi Amber,
    It's probably hopeless to try to download SP2 from Microsoft. Just
    order the disk -- they charge a couple of bucks and it arrives in a few
    days. It's handy too, in case you even need to repair or reinstall in the
    future. You can find the phone number/email/address to order SP2 on disk on
    the download site.

    Windows XP Service Pack 2 - download (for single PCs also)
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    SP2 CD can be ordered online.
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/d...s/default.mspx


    Service Pack 2 information
    http://www3.telus.net/dandemar/xpsp2.htm
    http://www3.telus.net/dandemar/spackins.htm
    http://www.windowstalk.org/sp2.htm


    With regard for checking for updates continually running -

    If you have a Wireless Router:-
    In the security tab, make sure you aren't blocking AcitveX.

    Some possibilities:

    1. Internet Explorer temporary files corrupted.
    2. Background Intelligent and Event Log service not started
    3. SoftwareDistribution folder has become corrupted
    4. You may need to re-registered some dlls files
    5. You may need to add Windows Update to the Trusted Sites Zone:
    6. Spyware.
    7. Third party programs running in background.
    8. ActiveX controls corrupted

    Suggestion 1:-
    Clearing Temporary Internet files, cookies and history in Internet Explorer
    Tools>Internet Options>General
    You'll see Delete Cookies, Delete files, Delete History
    NB: "Delete all offline content", will delete all files needed to browse the websites
    offline.
    Reboot and try Windows Update again.

    Suggestion 2:-
    1: Check that the Background Intelligent Transfer Service to is set to Automatic and
    verify the Status is Started.
    Click Start, Choose Run, and in the Run box, type services.msc, Click OK
    Locate the Background Intelligent Transfer Service service, and right-click to select it.
    Select Properties, and in the Startup Type list, select Automatic. Verify the service
    Status is Started. Click OK.

    2. Check that the Set Event Log service is set to Automatic and verify that the Status is
    Started
    Click Start, Choose Run, and in the Run box, type services.msc, Click OK.
    Locate the Event Log service, and right-click to select it.
    Select Properties., and in the Startup type list, select Automatic. Verify the Service
    status is Started. Click OK.

    3. Register qmgr.dll and qmgrprxy.dll
    Click Start, Choose Run and in the Run box, type regsvr32 qmgr.dll, Click OK.
    Click Start, Choose Run and in the Run box, type regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll, Click OK.

    Suggestion 3:-
    It is possible that the contents of the SoftwareDistribution folder have become corrupted,
    so try Renaming the SoftwareDistribution folder
    Click Start, Choose Run.
    In the Run box, type services.msc.
    Click OK.
    Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
    Click Stop.
    Stopping the service will take a moment.

    Rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder:
    a. Click Start, click Run, type: %systemroot%
    Click OK.
    b. Right-click the SoftwareDistribution folder, and then click Rename.
    c. Type SoftwareDistribution.old, and then press ENTER to rename this folder.

    Click Start. Choose Run.
    In the Run box, type services.msc.
    Click OK.
    Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
    Click Start.
    Starting the service will take a moment.

    Please note that your update history is contained in the "datastore" folder and when you
    rename the Software Distribution folder, the history is lost but it's not important. You
    can if need be, copy the contents back from the renamed softwareDistribution.old folder.
    Losing the history of Windows Updates is not important.

    Suggestion 4:-
    Certain files may have become unregistered, and you will need to register them again:-
    Click Start, Choose Run and in the Run box, type regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll, Click OK.

    Do the same for the other files:-
    wucltui.dll
    wuaueng.dll
    wuapi.dll
    jscript.dll
    MSXML.DLL
    MSXML2.DLL
    MSXML3.DLL

    Suggestion 5:-

    Add Windows Update to the Trusted Sites Zone:
    Please note that Security settings in Internet Explorer must be set to Medium or lower for
    ActiveX files to correctly pass to your computer.
    Only the Web sites listed in Internet Explorer's Trusted Sites Zone will be affected by
    the lowering of Security settings. Your current security settings for all other Web sites
    will remain as they are currently configured.

    Open Internet Explorer, click Tools, and then click Internet Options, Click Security.
    Click Trusted Sites Zone. Click Sites.
    Clear the Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone check box.
    Use the Add button next to the Add this Web site to the zone box to add the following
    sites:
    http://*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
    https://*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
    http://download.windowsupdate.com

    Suggestion 6:-
    The below links assist you in checking your system for parasites:-
    http://aumha.org/a/noads.htm
    http://inetexplorer.mvps.org/tshoot.html
    Please note that some malware may kill the internet connection when it is removed, the
    program on the link below will enable you to regain the internet connection.
    http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm

    Spyware Programs links:-
    http://www.microsoft.com/athome/secu...e/default.mspx (Windows Defender)
    www.lavasoftusa.com Ad-Aware
    www.security.kolla.de Spybot

    Suggestion 7:-
    Make sure you haven't got anything blocking Windows Update like Nortons, Zonealarm etc
    Also make sure you don't have a Web Accelerator working in the background such as
    NetZerio, HiSpeed, Speedband etc.

    Suggestion 8:
    If you need to reinstall the ActiveX controls (because they may have become corrupt):-

    Follow this article -
    The Windows Update Web site and the Microsoft Update Web site do not scan for updates when
    you repair a failed installation of Windows XP Service Pack 2 or of Windows XP Service
    Pack 1

    Re: Update runs forever! No freeze, just runs

    I did everything, but no results, the only thing it wouldn't allow me to do
    was change the name of the softwaredistribution file.

    Thanks for all your help though, I just am lost on what to do next, I
    checked my update history, it has tried to install automatic updates but I
    get failed with an error message as 0x80200001

    Re: Update runs forever! No freeze, just runs

    The very first link Taurarian provided you is a DIRECT link to SP2 that
    does not involve Windows/Microsoft Update. You should be able to
    download the entire package from that link.

    To change the name of SoftwareDistribution folder one MUST stop the
    Automatic Update service FIRST, which Taurarian also gave full
    instructions for.
    Please reread her post.

    Re: Update runs forever! No freeze, just runs

    Hi Amber,

    Here is the link that probably others have given you.

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    This is a manual download for Windows XP SP2 for all XP flavors. It
    takes about 48 minutes on Cable or DSL.

    You can't download Service Pack 2 through Windows Update, because all
    the Security Updates are for SP2 only.

    After you applied Service Pack 2, then you go back to Windows Update and
    get the rest of the Updates.

    You may be able to get Service Pack 2 through Microsoft Update, rather
    than using Windows Update, but the process takes longer.
