I have windows home edition service pack 1 and i need to update my browser? i keep getting debug errors


You will need to update XP to Service Pack 3. Just Google "XP Service Pack 3" and follow instructions, OR go to http://www.microsoft.com/update - this will also update your browser to Internet Explorer 8.

You can install Firefox with no special updates, but it would be better to update to SP3 anyway.

I can't install the service pack 3 of SQL server


Are you installing SP3 for SQL 2005 Standard or Express editions?

According to Microsoft, the standard edition will not work on XP Home.

Hello and thank you for using Fixya services.

From the sounds of your issue, it may be that you have malware or a trojan. You can run a scan using this free malware/antivirus protection. I am not sure which antivirus you are currently using but this one is free and has excellent reviews. You will need to uninstall your current antivirus protection first before installing this one.

Malware/trojans can disable your antivirus programs and make it look like everything is running smoothly. This would also block Windows updates. By running a thourall scan with another program, you can get the malware out. Even the best antivirus can be disabled.

Please let me know i I can be of further assistance

Access denied when installing win xp service pack 3


Are you logged in as an administrator on your PC? Access Denied is almost always an indicator that the current logged in user does not have sufficient permissions to install applications. Let us know if this is not the case. Hope this helps!

Windows XP home edition service pack 3


OK, do you wish to install further updates? if you dont, then what you can do is disable automatic updates

To do this, then right click on the desktop the icon My pc and select properties. The sub menu Automatic Updates you will find on the top, click that and check the box disable automatic updates

Some Automatic updates are dangerous and can cause your computer to stop working correctly. I would recommend you disable them. Once this is disabled, restart your computer and the access denied messages will disappear. This is because its most likely you have automatic updates set to download and install automatically. But once you disable this, problem should be solved.

If you have any more questions, please let me know

Update service pack 3 access is denied.


When you launch Windows Updates, don't choose the Express Updates but choose Custom. Then when you are presented with Service Pack 3, there is the option to not select it and then choose to continue to see what other updates there are. Personally, I do not recommend Automatic Updates or Express, always do it manually and always select Custom so an unwanted update doesn't get in under the radar and cause further problems. The rule of "if it isn't broken, don't fix it." really goes well with PC's.

Trouble installing sp 3 for my xp


The wiondows update usually validates your windows software before allowing the download. Was this OK? SP3 is only a compilation of all the previous upgrades - nothing very special.
