Comment by tarrawonga, posted on Aug 27, 2008 I did this and went back 10 days.
Sorry no change !!

There is no answer for this accept it all started when I allowed Microsoft to Automatically update my PC. Comment by tarrawonga, posted on Aug 27, 2008 I tried this and went and restored back 10 days and no change. I do not want to load Windows again at 46.64 kbps. I am on the Copper Belt not Optical Fibre

    I have tried 'Restore' - No luck here and have gone back 10 days. The problem started because I let Microsoft update automatically, never again.



    I do not want to reinstall my O.E.M. XP Windows 2002 due to it not being up to date. I am on Copper @ 46.64 kbps and downloading even if I get my System working would take for ever.



    If anyone has a solution please tell me, apart from throwing out Microsoft

When you say download do you mean any file you try to download? Have you tried using another browser such as firefox? If you do not have firefox installed I assume you cannot download it to try. If this is the case I would suggest going to a friend or family members computer & downloading it to a thumbdrive or cd then take it home & install it. If you can download from firefox. Then I would uninstall IE V 7 from add remove programs & then re install it. I'm assuming you have tried the usual things like restarting your computer

SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP. While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so. However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

Lost SP3 windows xp home edition version 2002 how do i get it back or do i need to I have automatic updates turned on when I look at programs beside it ,there no file size? also how do I fix error...


If you mean no file size showing up in "Add / Remove Programs"
thats because it's integrated / uninstallable but registered.

Error: 0x80070005, is that when you access "Microsoft Update"?

As for repairing SP3 Read more here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help/learn-how-to-install-windows-xp-service-pack-3-sp3

and you probably have to go for option:
"Manually installing SP3 using the Microsoft Download Center or a CD"

HTTP 400 BAD REQUEST


First, try updating windows. (Read everything below).
There is an error in windows .Net framework 1.1. Microsoft has a fix for this. You can read about it & manually repair this error at MS site. Click on the link below;
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/826437

What you want to do when updating windows!
Do not use Express. You want to install all .Net framework updates (one at a time). Re-start your system when windows tell you too. There are updates up to .Net framework 3.5 with (SP3) & this will take some time.

Cheers!

I386 language file is missing


What version of Windows are you running, and what service pack? If it's XP, try upgrading to XP SP3. Less than XP, try this: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/ie6/downloads/recommended/ime/install.mspx

Language packs are found on the OS CD, but since you don't have that you can try searching Microsoft Downloads for MUIs.

Savedump.exe error


Hi there
Savedump.exe is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. The file is a Windows core system file. The program has no visible window. savedump.exe is a Microsoft signed file. Therefore the technical security rating is 4% dangerous.
Some malware camouflage themselves as savedump.exe, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the savedump.exe process on your pc whether it is pest. I recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security.

If you want to get the full potential of 64bit processor then you will have install XP X64 and yes i'm sure SP3 will install.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
