    KB957200 not installing

    The package can be extracted with this command: expand -f:* Windows6.0-KB957200-x86.msu . Then you can extract the .cab file with winrar. If you look at the contents (look at the xml-files) you will find that there are 4 files being updated: werfaultsecure.exe (errorreportingfaults) werfault.exe (errorreportingfaults) faultrep.dll (errorreportingfaults) wersvc.dll (feedback-service) All related to the error reporting service, Which I removed. Mystery solved - no need for this patch!

    KB957200 not installing

    Yeah, I saw that and tried it --- no joy. But if it worked for you, I'll try it again with more persistence! Edit: No, that does not work for me. It's Office 2007 anyway, while the error # refers to Office 2003.

    KB957200 not installing

    Thanks, I can see why it works for you. You really don't remove much! I thought that I was conservative, but you put me to shame.

    KB957200 not installing

    The new compatibility update KB957200 is failing to install. I suspect because I removed Windows Mail. Anybody else have any experience or advice?

    Sounds like you changed to Vista 64?

    2 Laptops Not POSTING

    In the old days, we used to get this problem when the laptop battery (not the cmos battery) had gone bad. Removing the battery with the power cord removed and letting it sit for a few minutes would enable it to post after plugging power back in (leaving battery out).

    XP Mod to emulate MAC - PROBLEMS!

    For a quick fix, try going into WindowBlinds and set it to exclude (no skin) Symantec Pro Systemworks.

    Networking file share horrors

    This little phrase may be the clue to your problem. Read this: How to fix "Not enough storage space, etc"
  9. Enable the Gigabyte Boot Screen in the bios, it's ugly but it should solve your problem.

    I removed components, but want to install SP1

    By the time Service Pack 2 rolls around, I'll be ready for a fresh install anyway. In the meantime, I'll enjoy the ride!!

    how to get back windows defender?

    The only thing that I can think of is the reg file I gave you is from 64 bit Vista. Maybe someone will post the equivalent from 32 bit Vista.

    I would like to be able to set the workgroup, if it's there I never could find it. But, what a wonderful program!

    MS Office 2003 wont work properly

    OK, the first file error is because we removed tabletpc and I really don't care. The second error is a known problem with a fix discussed here: FM20.dll fix

    MS Office 2003 wont work properly

    OK 32 Bit Vista otherwise same specs as before. Got two errors during install but all programs checked out at least by running them a few times. Also ran various other stuff (parts of Windows) with no problem. I should add that I never install Access or Onenote.
