Re: Pavalion me software update
I would just do a clean install if I was you. Just put in the XP disk and install as if it were a new system. If you have files on your system that you want to keep just save them to a DVD or CD to avoid any issues with upgrading.

hi my name is rui it means microsoft detected that you have a non license software installed the only way to fix this is that you format your HD and install your OS newly then you must need to turn of the automatic update of your windows OS too. turn it of go to start>control panel>windows update.
The message does not indicate that there is an issue with the iPod but that that iTunes was unable to read the iPod software update it uses to restore or update your iPod. You can delete the folder containing the iPod software update files so iTunes can download a new copy of the iPod software update.
Here are the steps to take if you get this message:
Eject iPod and quit iTunes. Use Disk Utility in Mac OS X or run chkdsk in
Windows to verify there are no other issues on your hard drive. Locate the iPod Software Updates folder:
In Mac OS X, the folder is /Users/username/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates
In Windows Vista, the folder is C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates
In Windows XP and Windows 2000, the folder is C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates
Note: If you don't see the files in Windows, turn on the Show hidden files option. Windows Vista: Open Computer and choose Folder and Search Options from the Organize menu. Windows XP and 2000: Open My Computer and click Folder Options from the Tools menu. Click the View tab. In the Advanced Settings pane, select the "Show hidden files and folders" button. Click OK. Drag the iPod Software Updates folder to the Trash or Recycle Bin. Connect iPod and open iTunes. You will need to be connected to the Internet to download the files.
When you download drivers, they usually come as compressed files. Windows has a built in program to extract them. Right click on the downloaded compressed file and choose extract here. Double click on the file if it is an .exe file. If they are .dll files, you need to find the device that needs the driver in your device manager, choose install or update driver, and browse to the place that you downloaded the file to.
If when you reboot, it pops up a message about finding new hardware, and prompts you to install a driver, browse to the place you downloaded the driver to
Check your Ethernet device in device manager option. Click on the "Network adapter" option in device manager. Now re-install with your motherboard installation disc or click on "Update driver" option, it will automatically run and fix your problem.
If you are using PClink, it is not Vista compatible as far as I know. Try it on an XP machine.
If anyone is looking for a Sharp XE-A401 manual, there is one here
to get the register to communicate with your vista or to even run the customer support tool software you will need to uninstall, reinstall, right click on the icon on your desktop, choose properties,in the compatibility box put a checkmark in the "Run this program as administrator",
everything should operate normal now with no errors
