Thread: XP SP3 hung, hung and crashed (3 failures)

    XP SP3 hung, hung and crashed (3 failures)

    Existing software: Windows XP Professional SP2, IE7.

    1. [First installation attempt]
    Automatic updates says updates available. It's SP3. Yippi. Accepting, then
    update icon disappears and after some hours of absolutely nothing, I go to
    Windows Update site.

    2. [Second installation attempt]
    Installing from Internet Explorer. The EULA is even more offensive than usual,
    granting the right for Microsoft to install anything and to collect information
    about anything without even notifying me. Oh well, I accept anyway (I mean, I'd
    already done so without even glancing at it, the first time, I think).

    Progress meter is *fakeware*. First completely blank, then after half hour or
    so some activity but lying about what it does. E.g. downloading with zero
    network activity (I'm checking in Task Manager, yes it's really just lying).

    When it finally hangs completely there's still something ticking in IE: it
    acquires a new handle each second (almost precisely), without releasing. Other
    progs show zero activity. No CPU, no i/o.

    3. [Third installation attempt]
    Checking Windows Update for what to do. Following directions, I download
    complete SP3 as single file, reboot, and joy over joys uninstall is invoked
    automatically and actually works (or seems to!). I turn off network connection,
    turn off antivirus (AVG), run the thing from downloaded file, and when I return
    to computer after some time there's Just In Time Debugging reporting some access
    violation or whatever it was in the install program, i.e. a crash.

    Checking the update log there are no obvious error codes, but it seems there are
    more installation attempts than I did explicitly.

    Uninstall works automatically on reboot this time also, although ****s up
    connection to USB disk and reports it's unformatted, would I like to format?


    LOG:

    First attempt starts with
    10.906: In Function GetReleaseSet, line 1211, RegOpenKeyEx failed with error 0x2
    10.906: In Function GetReleaseSet, line 1240, RegOpenKeyEx failed with error 0x2

    This is repeated some tens of lines below.

    It copies a lot of files. But I'm not sure if this is an uninstall or what.
    The log could be more clear.

    After above continues with even more sections.

    Deinstallation did one more ungood thing, I just didn't notice. It reordered my
    quick launch items, set the icons to large size, and turned the quick launch
    toolbar (area) off. If anyone else experience this the fix for large icons is
    to unlock the task bar, add the quick launch toolbar, and right-click precisely
    on the toolbar drag handle (nearest start menu), then select small icons.

    Cheers,

    - Alf

    Fred Langa (former editor for Windows Magazine, The Langalist, and
    Windows Secrets) who recently retired from writing about technology,
    always recommended that his readers should wait a few weeks to a few
    months before installing a Windows Service Pack. There are just too many
    things that can go wrong. Better to let other people be the Guinea Pigs.
    Thanks to your post and others here I won't be installing SP3 anytime soon.
