There of lot of changes done while installing updates and it especially changes some registry values too... so sometimes it affect some programs which are running well and would become ok once the program is reinstalled but there might be data losses to avoid this only it is asking you to backup... the entire os is not reinstalled...

System mechanic or professional failure code 323-a


This error comes usually on system with Service pack 3.
The reason why this message comes on the system is the service pack 3 is either currpted or not installed properly.

" The 323 error can occur when using the Standard Edition release of the 1.0 version of the Microsoft Systems Management Server program. It happens when the Systems Management Server is used with the non-U.S.
version of the Microsoft SQL Server version 4.21a. The 323 error appears in the Systems Management Server event log. It is logged because of a discrepancy in the settings for the two programs. The required time and date format for the Systems Management Server is different from the format used in the SQL Server. It may happen when the
French version of the SQL Server is installed on a U.S. version of Windows NT wherein French is the default language used for the SQL Server "

Dear Sir/Madam,

This error will appear if you have installed the 16.05 version of
Trend Micro Internet Security Pro, Trend Micro Internet Security and
Trend Micro AntiVirus plus AntiSpyware 2008 on a computer running
Windows Vista with Service Pack 1 or Window XP with Service Pack 3.


The Trend Micro Personal Firewall and the Unauthorized Changes
Prevention features main components do not work with the new service
packs from Microsoft.


A working version of Trend Micro Internet Security Pro, Trend Micro
Internet Security and Trend Micro AntiVirus plus AntiSpyware 2008 with
Windows Vista SP1 and Windows XP SP3 would be released sometime in
February 2008.


The release would be timed before Microsoft uploads the new service
packs in their automatic update servers for Windows.


To prevent this message from appearing, follow the steps indicated
below:


a.Check the program version of the Trend Micro program installed on
your computer.


b.If you are using version 16.05 and you want to continue using this
latest version of the Trend Micro program, you must uninstall the non-
working service pack from Microsoft.


c. If you do not want to remove the new Microsoft service packs, Trend
Micro suggests that you uninstall the Trend Micro program installed in
your computer and install PC-cillin Internet Security 2007 until the
release of the working version.

Thanks
Good Luck

WINDOWS SERVICE PACK 2


No product key is required for any Windows Service Pack or any other updates.
Go to Windows Update for any Windows update files and installs.
Go to Start, All Programs, then look at the list of programs above the LINE on your program files list.
Download and install all the Windows updates that are on the CRITICAL list, and all of those optional files that you might also need.
