SfCtCom, downloaded updates, cannot install

I just reinstalled windows, downloaded updates, but can't install them, I noticed windows reinstalled differently too last time, I only just did a clean install 2 weeks ago, but did it again to recover missing files. HOW MANY TIMES CAN I REINSTALL WINDOWS? Here is the error I think could be stopping the installment, the only one I can find in the error log. event I.D. 0,SfCtCom cannot be found, use /AUXSOURCE=flag. I am quite stuck here, can't install anything, should I reinstall a third time? What went wrong this time???

    If you have a spare memory module try also replacing the RAM, faulty ram can cause funny problems during windows installation.

    Do not download the updates, test first that windows is working without them , you already have sp2,.

I kept getting notices I needed to update AVG and when I finally did it I am getting a message that it did not install correctly. I took it off and reinstalled with the same results. I seem to remember...


First, I would recommend you go here to download the latest version. Make sure all AVG components are uninstalled then install the AVG you just downloaded. If it still doesn't work, download a program called CCleaner here. Use this to clean uninstall AVG and clean your registry. Then install the AVG you just downloaded again and it should work. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

Some files of my window xp sp2 are missing


Take your windows cd and do a repair reinstall. to do this you:

insert the cd
restart computer
boot to cd
at first screen select install
hit f8 for license
select r for repair

this will then go through a series of steps and reinstall the os. after this is done you can download sp2 and update to it then download sp3 and update to that. After all that you can get the rest of the updates.

My problem is window xp already install in my computer.i want reinstall in my computer.how do this?


First, locate the Windows CD that shipped with your PC, along with the CDs for your application software. If you downloaded your antivirus, firewall, or other programs, copy those downloads to a CD or to some other type of removable media. (If your system didn't ship with a Windows CD, your reinstallation files are situated on your hard drive; I'll describe how to access them in just a minute.) Also, dig up the instructions that your ISP sent you for configuring your network settings, and keep them close at hand.
Copy the contents of your 'C:\Documents and Settings' folder (or whichever folder you store your personal files on) to a CD or other removable medium. Then grab any other critical data and back it up. It helps to collect the installers for the latest drivers for your PC's graphics card and other hardware, too.
Ready to ReinstallNow insert the Windows CD that came with your PC, and reboot your system. If you didn't receive a Windows disc with your machine, the files you need are sitting in a hidden partition on your hard drive. To access them, press the keys indicated on your screen when you reboot, but before Windows loads. The keys differ from vendor to vendor, so contact your PC's manufacturer if you don't see the prompt.
In many instances, the only available option is 'Return the drive to its factory condition', which destroys all documents, photos, and other data files on your PC. That's why you made a copy of your data folders.
You get more options--including the ability to preserve your files and settings--when you use Microsoft's own Windows XP installation disc. Make your selection, and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the reinstallation.
Starting OverRegardless of which option you choose, you'll have to reconfigure your network connections, reinstall some of your device drivers, and update XP and your applications manually.
To configure your Internet connection, right-click My Network Places, click Create a new connection, and follow the prompts, entering the appropriate information you received from your ISP.
Once you've re-established your Internet link, you must reinstall and update your firewall, antivirus, and antispyware programs.
Next, check to see which of your device drivers need updates: Rght-click My Computer and select Properties, Hardware, Device Manager. Look for entries with yellow question marks or red exclamation points. A question mark indicates that Windows is using a generic driver for that device instead of one specifically designed for it; an exclamation point means that the device is not working.
The drivers for graphics boards, sound cards, and printers are most likely to need an update. If you haven't already done so, visit the vendors' Web sites to download updated drivers to your PC. Run the installer for each updated driver, allowing XP to reboot when needed, or right-click the entry in Device Manager, choose Update Driver, and step through the wizard, selecting No, not this time to the Windows Update question, and choosing the specified location option when it appears. When you can navigate to the driver file, select it and click OK to install it. When you finish updating your drivers, close all open windows.
Updates GaloreYour next stop is Microsoft's Windows Update site. Click Start, Windows Update, and follow the prompts. Since you'll probably be downloading many megabytes of updates, you might want to find yourself a good book or seek some other diversion while you wait.
When the downloading is complete, you'll be ready to reinstall and update your applications. Don't forget to update your critical apps as well. Microsoft Office, in particular has some important updates. Download them at the Microsoft Office Online Downloads page.
Once you've restored your applications, begin replacing your data. The first priorities are the My Documents and Application Data folders, which you'll find in the folder with your logon name inside 'C:\Documents and Settings'. To bring back your Internet Explorer favorites, restore the contents of the Favorites folder. Also restore the Shared Data and Application Data folders inside 'C:\Documents and Settings\Shared Documents'. Once you've reintroduced all of your data, your Windows refresh will be complete.

Dowload a full version of Service pack 3 from the link below. It is an an official copy from Microsoft.
After download, manually install it. Installation should take 10 to 15 minutes, if installation doesnt complete, you will have to reinstall your Windows XP for it to successfully install.

I cant download windows vista sp2 from windows update. where & how can i download this update


Here you go.

The SP2 download through Windows Update is very touchy. I cant even think about dowloading it. I have installed it twice already. No less than a day after I do, my harddrive freezes. I reformat/reinstall and have not had any problems at all NOT running SP2 for the past month.

Did you try uninstalling the last batch of updates?
To see the updates under "Add or Remove Programs", you'll need to check the appropriate box at the top.
If uninstalling does not help, you may have to start over.

Possible approaches to avoid the same issue when starting over:
  • Don't use SP3, unless you know that you *need* it. Check Wikipedia to decide whether you need it.
  • Install OS with SP2 and all updates, only then apply SP3.
  • Don't install all updates at once. Install them in batches of, say, 10 a batch. If the same thing happens, you know which batch was responsible.

Installing the downloads in xp home edition


The only thing that comes to mind is you have some antiviirus/firewall software that will not allow it to load.
Depending on what type is is it can be blocking it without telling you or allowing you to pass the program.
This is a common issue with this type of software.
you can disable it but how depends on what it is.
if you can disable it then run the update manually.
start/windows update
