Checking for updates results in an error message (0x8024001D)


Running windows update, Express or Custom it does not matter, when checking for updates an error message (0x8024001D) saying “the page can not be displayed” occurs.

Rename the SoftwareDistribution folder:
Stop the Automatic Updates Service
Go to Start>Run and type in: services.msc
Click on OK or hit ENTER
In the right-hand pane of the Services window, right-click on Automatic Updates and then select Stop

Now, navigate to C:\Windows (C:\WINNT, if using Windows 2000) folder, locate and rename the SoftwareDistribution folder to SDOLD

Restart the Automatic Updates Service by re-opening the Services window,

right-click on Automatic Updates and then select Start.

Please note that a "side effect" of renaming (or deleting) the SoftwareDistribution folder is that you will lose your current Update
History listing.

I have an Acer aspire one netbook. ?; why cant i rename a file. Its in, Computer-Ascer(C:)-Users-. There are two files in this folder. Im not able to rename either. Is there a way to rename them?


If you have the file open or part of the content of the file is in use some place in the pc it wont let you rename it
try open the file as an administrator in safe mode or it might be read only attributes
copy paste soem place else see if it lets you then change name
rename and save some place else



There are several reasons why Windows might not allow you to delete a file:
  • The file might be in use in which case you can't delete the file until the program using it gives it up.
  • The file might be marked read-only.
  • The file name might be so long that Windows can't handle it. File names with more than 260 characters in them are often difficult to delete.
There are also several reasons why Windows might not allow you to change the name of a file; particularly its extension. All above apply here; as well as...
  • Your system may not be showing file extensions by default.
We'll cover that one first and the others in turn.
File Extensions Not ShowingThis is the most likely possibility for why you might not be able to change a file's type (i.e., rename the file extension). When Windows installs, one of the defaults is to turn off the showing of the full names for common file types. Basically, in Windows Explorer only the file's rootname shows; the extension is suppressed, yet is "shown" via the description in the File Type column of the Windows Explorer display.
When Windows is set up this way, if you attempt to change a file's name you are only allowed to change the rootname of the file but not its extension. So, if you have a file that shows up as MYFILE as file type Text and you attempt to rename the file to MYFILE.DOC what you really have done is rename MYFILE.TXT to MYFILE.DOC.TXT and the file type in Explorer will remain Text instead of changing to a Word File.
How to you fix this? FILExt has a different FAQ here that explains the procedure in detail.
The File is in UseA file in use by the operating system generally can't be changed while the file is in use. A file in use by a program may or may not be able to be changed. These are not hard and fast rules and exceptions abound; particularly in a multi-user environment. But, if you try to rename or delete a file and Windows complains that the file is in use don't be surprised.
To fix this you have to determine what is using the file. The error message that Windows pops up may or may not have that information in it.
If you don't want to experiment a bit to figure out what might be using the file you can restart the computer with all startup options turned off. This will most likely not run whatever was using the file and the system will allow you to rename the file. Recognize that if you do this and then restart the computer with all startup options enabled some program will likely complain that it can no longer find the file you just renamed. This may or may not affect how your system performs (or even operates at all).
To change the startup options, use the System Configuration Utility.
  • Click on the Start Menu.
  • Click on the Run item.
  • Type msconfig into the dialog box and click OK.
Use the various startup options settings to reconfigure your system startup as needed to find the subject program or process. Remember the caveat about how changing the name of a file a program or the system uses might affect system behavior. Keep good records so you can reverse what you did if necessary.
If you want to experiment a bit, press the Control-Alt-Delete keychord (press all three keys at the same time) only once (if you press the keychord twice you will restart your computer). The Windows Task Manager will appear. Take the Applications tab and see if anything is running. If so, stop those programs (it's usually better to switch to the program and then close it from the program instead of picking Close from the Task Manager). Wait a bit as it sometimes takes Windows a bit of time to release all program assets. Then try to rename or delete the file. If you now can rename or delete the file you know one of the programs was using it (stop only one program at a time if you really, really want to know which one).
If you still can't rename or the file you need to go to the Processes tab. There should be a number of running processes. Two of these are particularly important: Explorer and Systray. Do not end these. The other processes should be able to be stopped. Try stopping those processes you may recognize one at a time. Attempt to rename or delete the file after each has stopped. If you can, then you know what process was using the file. Keep going until only Explorer and Systray are running. If the file is still in use you've got your answer. The most basic processes in the computer are using the file. The same caveat as above applies: the file was in use for a reason and if you rename it or delete it the system may become unstable if you rename the file.
File is Marked Read-onlyThis is the easy one. To find out if a file is marked read-only right click on the file in Windows Explorer. Select "Properties" from the menu that pops up. At the bottom of the dialog that appears are the attributes for that particular file. See if the Read-only box is checked. If so, you won't be allowed to modify the file. To take the read-only attribute off the file uncheck the box. Again, be aware that if some program requires that file to be read-only and you change that attribute or the file's name you may have system problems. Use caution.
Note: If the file is in use (see above) or you don't have the necessary permissions (i.e., you're not logged in with administrator status) the read-only box may be greyed out and until you correct whichever condition is to blame you will not be able to change the attribute.
How does a file get to be read-only? Most of the time it's by copying the file from a CD. Most CD media, by design, is read-only and often when you copy a file from a CD (or an install program copies the file) a read-only attribute will be given to the file because it was read-only on the CD. This doesn't happen often, but does happen often enough to cause some people problems.
File Name is Too LongWindows has special problems dealing with extra long path/filenames. If the combination of the path and file names gets close to 255 characters (127 for Windows 95/98/ME) Windows will likely not handle it well if you try to delete or rename it (you can create it but not change it). While there are programs that can handle names that long or longer (e.g., FileBoss) the first thing to try would be to rename some of the folders that lead up to the file itself. Back the directory display up one level and then select and rename the folder the file is in. Try a single letter (obviously, keep a record of what folder you named to what so you can reverse the process!). Then, go back to the file and see if Windows then allows you to rename or delete it. If not, go back yet another folder and rename that one and so forth. At some point you should be able to find a series of reduced-length folder names that allow you to then rename the offending file to a short enough name to allow you to then recreate the original directory tree and still work with the file in question.
Special Programs for Deleting Files/FoldersSometimes you can't seem to delete a file or folder no matter what you do. In this case there are a few programs that might help you.

If, after all this you still can't rename/delete a file, not certain what else to suggest. Others have this problem often and as different ideas might come up in the FILExt forum I'll change this FAQ to include them. If you find a method that works for you and is not in this FAQ, please drop FILExt a note with details on that method so it can be added to the FAQ.

Unable to load windows got an error 0x80070057.plz help


What causes Error 0x80070057

# Windows Update simply has an issue with your "SoftwareDistribution" folder.

# This appears to be an issue with the program Netop which enters a driver entry into the enum\root\unknown key in the registry.

# You have old versions of OKI drivers installed.


To resolve this error, use one of the following methods:

Resolution Suggestion One:

# 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.

Now rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder:

a) Click Start, click Run, type

%systemroot%

...and then click OK.

b) Right-click the SoftwareDistribution folder, and then click Rename.

c) Type SoftwareDistribution.old and then press ENTER to rename this folder.


Now click Start, and 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.

NB - You will lose your update download history but this is not that important compared to not being anle to download the updates!

Now Try WU website again.


Resolution Suggestion Two:

# Customer will see error 0x800A138F when scanning for updates, but the Windows Update.log file will show error 0x80070057:

This appears to be an issue with the program Netop which enters a driver entry into the enum\root\unknown key in the registry.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\
{63C35530-D3DF-11D3-8F5D-0060B0A3612B}\0000]
"ProviderName"="Danware Data A/S"
"DriverDesc"="NetOp Driver 3 ver. 7.00 (2002014)"
"DriverDate"="Jan 14 2002"
"DriverVer"="7.00 (2002014)"
"MatchingDeviceId"="danware_netop_driver3"

Both the DriverDate and DriverVer are not formatted properly

Visit http://www.netop.com/tech/download/fix/fixwinup.exe
and run this executable If you are running the Netop software.

(NB - Sadly this file has now been removed from their website.)

------------------------------

Resolution Suggestion Three:

# Update drivers for your OKI device:

Typically folk complain of problems with OKI B4300 drivers and OKI Page 14ex drivers installed...

Visit http://www.oki.com and update your device drivers.

To complete part one, follow these steps:
  1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  5. At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line: md tmp
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\system c:\windows\tmp\system.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\software c:\windows\tmp\software.bak

    copy c:\windows\repair\default c:\windows\system32\config\default
  6. Type exit to quit Recovery Console. Your computer will restart.
Note This procedure assumes that Windows XP is installed to the C:\Windows folder. Make sure to change it is a different location.

If you have access to another computer, to save time, you can copy the text in step five, and then create a text file called "Regcopy1.txt" (for example). To use this file, run the following command when you start in Recovery Console: batch regcopy1.txtWith the batch command in Recovery Console, you can process all the commands in a text file sequentially. When you use the batch command, you do not have to manually type as many commands. Part two loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); To complete the procedure described in this section, you must be logged on as an administrator, or an administrative user (a user who has an account in the Administrators group). If you are using Windows XP Home Edition, you can log on as an administrative user. If you log on as an administrator, you must first start Windows XP Home Edition in Safe mode. To start the Windows XP Home Edition computer in Safe mode, follow these steps.
  1. Click Start, click Shut Down (or click Turn Off Computer), click Restart, and then click OK (or click Restart).
  2. Press the F8 key.

    On a computer that is configured to start to multiple operating systems, you can press F8 when you see the Startup menu.
  3. Use the arrow keys to select the appropriate Safe mode option, and then press ENTER.
  4. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, use the arrow keys to select the installation that you want to access, and then press ENTER.
In part two, you copy the registry files from their backed up location by using System Restore. This folder is not available in Recovery Console. Before you start this procedure, you must change several settings to make the folder visible:
  1. Start Windows Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Folder options.
  3. Click the View tab.
  4. Under Hidden files and folders, click to select Show hidden files and folders, and then click to clear the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box.
  5. Click Yes when the dialog box that confirms that you want to display these files appears.
  6. Double-click the drive where you installed Windows XP to display a list of the folders. If is important to click the correct drive.
  7. Open the System Volume Information folder. This folder is unavailable and appears dimmed because it is set as a super-hidden folder.
  8. Open a folder that was not created at the current time. You may have to click Details on the View menu to see when these folders were created. There may be one or more folders starting with "RPx under this folder. These are restore points.
  9. Open one of these folders to locate a Snapshot subfolder. The following path is an example of a folder path to the Snapshot folder: C:\System Volume Information\_restore{D86480E3-73EF-47BC-A0EB-A81BE6EE3ED8}\RP1\Snapshot
  10. From the Snapshot folder, copy the following files to the C:\Windows\Tmp folder:
    • _REGISTRY_USER_.DEFAULT
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SECURITY
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SAM
  11. Rename the files in the C:\Windows\Tmp folder as follows:
    • Rename _REGISTRY_USER_.DEFAULT to DEFAULT
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SECURITY to SECURITY
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE to SOFTWARE
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM to SYSTEM
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SAM to SAM
These files are the backed up registry files from System Restore. .

Part Three loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); In part three, you delete the existing registry files, and then copy the System Restore Registry files to the C:\Windows\System32\Config folder:
  1. Start Recovery Console.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line: del c:\windows\system32\config\sam

    del c:\windows\system32\config\security

    del c:\windows\system32\config\software

    del c:\windows\system32\config\default

Windows XP SP2 Repair


Solution: Rename the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CATROOT2 folder to something such as catold to prevent WinXP's Setup program from locating the folder and halting the installation. If you are still in Setup, press SHIFT-F10 to launch a command prompt from within Setup. At the command prompt, type cd\win dows\System32 to open the System32 folder and then type rename CATROOT2 catold, press ENTER, restart the computer, and attempt the upgrade again.

If you cannot reach a command prompt from Setup, reboot the computer from a Win95, Win98, or WinMe startup disk and rename the folder from the command prompt. You can also launch a command prompt by booting from the WinXP installation CD and running the Recovery Console.
