HERE TO FIX ERROR Code 8000FFFF/ Update for Windows Vista (KB92977

So...you did a memory upgrade and suddenly a new update (KB929777)
appears. You try too install it...again and again..it fails with ERROR CODE
8000FFFF. Here is the fix....put away the screwdriver and forget about taking
out the modules.
Go to Control Panel(classic view), Windows Update, Review Update
History,click on installed updates(blue text at the top), Find (KB929777),
right click and uninstall it. Reboot the computer. After re-start go to
Control Panel, Check For Updates, (KB929777) should be there...if
not...download it from Microsoft Updates and save it to desktop. Download and
install (KB929777). Re-boot and your life is back to normal and you will
never have another bad day!

Re: HERE TO FIX ERROR Code 8000FFFF/ Update for Windows Vista (KB92977

When I try to log on to msn messenger I get 8000ffff error. I have checked on my update and there isn`t any KB929777 update installed on my computer. We have 4 computer on the same router and I was thinking that something had happened on another computer in the LAN. I also cannot browse either www.microsoft.com or www.hotmail.com
Can anyone be helpful?
Many thanks

Hi and thanks for your prompt answer.

I have tried both links but it says that the page cannot be displayed because I am not connected to the internet or either the server is down. The problem is because I am connected to the Internet and I can view any other site but a relative URL for http//www.microsoft.com or http//www.hotmail.com and I do not receive an error code for them.
Thanks

Perhaps that will fix the apparently broken keyboard as everything you
type is in CAPITAL LETTERS ?
